    While she collects half a million in Komen salary she's Ambassador to Hungary and Chief of Protocol (whatever the heck that is.)

    How many days did she work in Hungary for that salary? Or in "protocol?" Did she collect tax dollars for those jobs? It's hard to imagine doing two highly paid jobs at the same time. (Not mentioning the other boards she's paid to be on.)

      To quote Wikipedia: "Brinker was also United States Ambassador to Hungary from 2001 to 2003 and Chief of Protocol of the United States from 2007 to the end of the George W. Bush administration." Chief of Protocol of the United States is a very senior State Department position, which basically means she was Bush's adviser on diplomatic procedures.

      Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.
