Because YOU wouldn't whine and cry if the temperature in the sweatshop were above 68 degrees, you were paid 8 cents an item and had to meet daily quotas under threat of termination while using non-ergonomically designed equipment 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, with no sick time, vacation, health insurance, family medical leave, or recourse against adverse work conditions or managerial harassment. Btw, the 12-year old working next to you is twice as fast as you and eats less so his break is shorter. Yah, unions suck.

It was one of Barack Obama's best lines -- and best moments -- in the 2008 presidential campaign.

He had said we could save as much oil as we could get from domestic drilling if everybody properly maintained their cars and got their tires inflated. Now, that was hyperbole. But when conservatives, including his opponent, Sen. John McCain, tried to turn tire gauges into a symbol of Obama's pointy-headed liberalism (remember Dukakis and the endive!) and the sum total of his energy plan (if only!), Obama stood his ground.
