Compassionate conservatives and the working poor
Once again the administration and its friends show why they should be unemployed.
A campaign worker for President Bush said on Thursday American workers unhappy with low-quality jobs should find new ones -- or pop a Prozac to make themselves feel better.

"Why don't they get new jobs if they're unhappy -- or go on Prozac?" said Susan Sheybani, an assistant to Bush campaign spokesman Terry Holt.

That might be good advice, but the working poor can't afford it on their crappy pay and they don't have insurance to help them. If Susan Sheybani had ever had to make an honest living she might know that.
