Sex slaves are classy The Next Left
... or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Tom DeLay.

Is it just me or is sex slavery classy? Taking young women who come into a country to work in factories and then forcing them into prostitution ... that's class.

You know what else is classy? No minimum wage. Making sure that immigrant workers in the Marianas can continued to be paid whatever factory owners want to pay them ... that's class. Sticking a "Made in the USA" label on the products of their labor ... that's extra classy.

So who is the champion of class? Not the Democrats. When in 1997, Bill Clinton proposed to Marianas governor that workers have rights like those in the United States ... definitely not classy. Telling Marianas governor “certain labor practices in the islands . . . are inconsistent with our country’s values,” was an unclassy move.

Being bribed by the Marianas governor and lobbyist Abramoff to make sure that congress could not even vote on labor laws for the Marianas, however, is ultra-classy.

No, the true champion of class is Tom DeLay.
