Compassionate Conservatism's Finest Hour
A campaign worker for President Bush (news - web sites) 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.
When told the Prozac comment had been overheard, Sheybani said: "Oh, I was just kidding."
The article ends on this somber note: " Nearly 1.1 million jobs have been lost since Bush took office in January 2001."
Thanks to the Fine Folk at Bartcop's discussion-board for the link, and for the astute observation from SleepingTight that people with GOOD jobs can't afford it, since "Prozak cost around $250 a month, and because its mental health and not "critical" most health insurance providers wont cover it at all, or they only cover a little bit of it."
