Lettuce

Yeah, this guy’s got a good idea about handing out sets of 9 key rings at the Dem Convention, but I like my idea better.

Heads of lettuce, my friends.

The McCain camp is obsessed with Obama’s purported concern over the price of arugula, but it was John McCain who said that American workers were too lazy to pick lettuce for $50 an hour.

And when McCain spoke about immigration at the BCTD conference yesterday, the crowd began booing, with one participant honing in on the real issue, shouting: “Pay a decent wage!”

McCain’s response? Immigrants were taking jobs nobody else wanted.

But that wasn’t enough of an insult. McCain then offered anybody in the crowd $50 an hour to pick lettuce in Arizona.

When some union leaders said they’d accept his offer, the expensive-suited Washington, D.C., politician insisted none of them would do such menial labor for a complete season.

Said McCain: “You can’t do it, my friends.”

This is a natural not just for Dems/labor but for the Lou Dobbs crowd. Hey, even the Minutemen are on board.

So: I propose heads of lettuce be handed out at the convention, maybe wrapped with those paper bands they put around stacks of $50 dollar bills. Some of the heads of lettuce could even have $50 bills hidden within their icebergy folds.
