Democrats Hate America: RIAA Flack Hired for DNC

The Democrats decided to deal with the devil and hire the Director of Communications for the RIAA, Jenni Engebretsen, as their Deputy CEO of Public Affairs for the Democratic National Convention in Denver. For a party with two of its major candidates for the presidential nomination positioning themselves as populists, the move is a bit off, to say the least.

Cory at BoingBoing describes the range of malfeasance perpetrated by the RIAA in his post, as well as Ms. Engebretsen's day job pretty nicely:

It has been Engebretsen's job to sell these initiatives to the American public. She's failed to sell this to the American public. Not only does she take a paycheck for selling gangsters to the public — she's not very good at it!
Maybe she'll better at selling evil politicians than she is at selling evil record execs. If you feel particularly incensed, you can get a hold of the DNC here. – Matt Buchanan
