Kansas City Star | 03/12/2006 | The buzz: "Union revolt

Andy Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union, pulled the union out of the AFL-CIO last year. Now he may be splitting from Democrats.

Stern said that while many Americans have lost faith in GOPers, Democrats have let American workers down. In response, he said, the SEIU will recruit its own candidates, even if that means running them against Democrats: “We are not angry. We are going to get even.”

He claimed GOPers are more adept at reaching out to ordinary voters: “The Democrats think elections are ‘Jeopardy’ or ‘College Bowl,’ and Republicans think they are ‘American Idol.’”"

Hello! Give that man a pension fund! Oh, wait - he has one!

This could be fun. I hope the NEA follows suit.
