Indianapolis Campaign workers honored by being the first stiffed by Obama. [Updated]

As above, so below.

A little story, but still amusing. Via Glenn Reynolds:

Obama campaign workers angry over unpaid wages

Indianapolis – Lines were long and tempers flared Wednesday not to vote but to get paid for canvassing for Barack Obama. Several hundred people are still waiting to get their pay for last-minute campaigning. Police were called to the Obama campaign office on North Meridian Street downtown to control the crowd.

The line was long and the crowd was angry at times.

“I want my money today! It’s my money. I want it right now!” yelled one former campaign worker.

Good grasp of the fundamentals, there. Ever notice that while it takes years of study to properly understand Marxism (and many more years of study to learn how to properly excuse its routine failure to do anything except turn live peasants into dead ones in mass quantities), but anybody can set up a working capitalist system in roughly thirty seconds?

Yeah, there’s a reason for that.

PS: Read the whole thing: there’s a heck of a punchline there from the paper itself.
