Bureaucrat Union runs pro-spendulus political ads

The Hill reports, "Radio ads target House, Senate GOPers on stimulus"

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and Americans United for Change will launch the spots in 18 House districts, as well as three states represented by GOP senators who voted against the Senate version of the stimulus.

Gee, color me surprised. A union of bureaucrats thinks that spending a bunch of money on bureaucracy and pet projects is absolutely necessary for the country.

Trust me, after having worked in government, AFSCME is not the bureaucrats, AFSCME is the secretaries and file clerks that actually do anything.

If only management could be elected and removed by election. Well, I guess in government some of the people are elected, but not by anyone who knows what their job entails. (Example, the 2008 Cook County Recorder of Deeds race)
