Quote of the Day

What long-haired-hippy-freak-pinko-communist (as my dad used to lovingly call them) said the following?

Corporations are not interested in democracy; they’re interested in making money, in capitalism. Look at China. There businesses don’t have to abide by environmental standards, union rights, human rights generally.”
The answer will surprise you. It's Florida Republican and Speaker of the State House Marco Rubio, in an article for the NY Times Magazine about Little Havana and the Cuban Exile community. The whole thing is good reading (though they're dismissive of Annette Taddeo's chances versus Ileana Ros-Lehtinen), but I thought the above comment was worth particular note.
