McCain responded by saying immigrants were taking jobs nobody else wanted. He offered anybody in the crowd $50 an hour to pick lettuce in Arizona.
Shouts of protest rose from the crowd, with some accepting McCain's job offer.
"I'll take it!" one man shouted.
McCain insisted none of them would do such menial labor for a complete season. "You can't do it, my friends."
Evil Monkey's wife points out that there are prostitutes who work for much less, and only an out-of-touch elitist pig would suggest your average American couldn't handle an honest day's work. Hell, I'd happily pick lettuce for $50 bucks an hour.
This is a wakeup call to everyone who honestly doesn't think there is an ongoing class war in the US.
