  1. “Thanks for all that cash you bundled for me, Penny. Anything else you’d like while I’m still in office?”

    – Barack Obama

    A note from my therapist: This is likely a real quote!

  2. A Chicago Billionaire, what could go wrong ?

    Pay to Play is alive and well in our White House. She was one of his “senior” economic advisors, how did that work out?

  3. I don’t know about Froman, and I am kind of afraid to know, but Pritzker is just another in your face America nominee from the King. But in the end, since we have no commerce to speak of, what’s the harm in indulging the Democrat 1%…she and Mooch can shop.

  4. From Hyatt’s Wiki:

    On July 23, 2012, Unite Here, a multi-industry union,[25] called for a global boycott of Hyatt. The union, in combination with groups such as the National Football League Players Association, the National Organization of Women, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, among others, cited widespread labor abuses, calling Hyatt “the worst hotel employer in America”.[26] The company responded with a full page Washington Post ad, defending itself and accusing the union of “publicity stunts”.[27]
