Nevada Union Endorsements

Nevada is a union state. Today the Culinary Workers Union endorsed Barack Obama.

This is a big endorsement, but the Culinary Workers are not the only powerful union in Nevada. Still to be heard from are the International Association of Croupiers, Keno-runners and Cocktail Waitress, as well as the Brotherhood of Buscemi Lookalikes, the Transgenderhood of Cirque de Soleil Acrobats and Mutants, the Hookers, Whores and Trannies Union (Local 69), the Congress of Arm-Candy, the Association of Furtive Hotel Maids, and of course the influential American Federation of Button Men.

“Nevada Union Endorsements”

  1. Blogger Michael Reynolds Says:

    And the North American Pole-Dancers Union. And the Society of Sweaty-fisted Craps Shooters.

  2. Blogger Randy (Internet Ronin) Says:

    Isn't this his first big union endorsement? I seem to recall most of the others splitting between Edwards and Clinton. If so, this is very good news for his campaign that goes way beyond Nevada.

  3. Blogger Pastor_Jeff Says:

    I always liked Homer's union: International Brotherhood of Jazz Dancers, Pastry Chefs, and Nuclear Technicians.

  4. Blogger Alan Stewart Carl Says:

    forgot a few...

    Donkey and Fish Poker Union (they split from the more traditional Bad Beat Story Society)

    The Fat Elvis Impersonator Union

    And The Fraternal Organization of Ultra-Lounge Lizards
