Looking for Union Labels

There are plenty of choice words in the AFL-CIO's press release on l'affaire LeBlanc. Here's a few juicier cuts:

It is completely arrogant for these leaders to breezily dismiss the leadership potential of all 176,000 union members in Virginia. Their decision is tantamount to saying that there’s no real place at the table for the working men and women of Virginia.


Virginia’s working men and women are keeping a close eye on elected leaders’ decisions and will hold them accountable on election day.

I'll have my ounce of flesh medium, with cheddar. Hold the venom.

In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
