Kevin Rudd, of the left wing Australian Labor Party, is Australia's prime minister. One of those brave politicians who posture as protector of the common man and woman. But Hillary Clinton Disease is a worldwide epidemic. This is London reports on an air rage incident when the non-meat-eater was not served a meal to his liking:
AUSTRALIA'S prime minister Kevin Rudd today apologised for reducing a woman flight attendant to tears over an in-flight meal.
His outburst came on a flight from Papua New Guinea when he was told his special meal request could not be met.
Mr Rudd, who is on a meat-free diet, said he had a "discussion" with the 23-year-old attendant on the Royal Australian Air Force's aircraft in January - after an official report detailing his behaviour had been filed by the VIP fleet commander.
I have found that many liberals believe their politics absolve them from any requirement of decent personal behavior towards those whose interests they fancy themselves protecting.
President George W. Bush, in contrast, has been noted for his courtesy and consideration toward all those who worked for him in service roles. I tend to judge people more by their actions than their words.
