Arianna Huffington: “Millions for me. None for thee.”

Via Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion:

It always amazed me that HuffPo bloggers (not the handful of well paid staffers, but the great unwashed) thought they were so special by being allowed to blog at HuffPo, when in fact they were being treated as unindentured servants.  They were able leave, but they were working for free to help Arianna build a business.

Who knew that the website devoted to a living wage and moral imperatives actually manged to get liberal bloggers to work for free to make money for the boss-lady and her investment banking investors.

Oh, the irony. For years, leftwing zealots logged into their HuffPo accounts and railed against the capitalist pigs of the Republican Party, the Tea Party movement and conservatives in general.

And now, they wake up to learn that they’ve been sold out by a capitalist pig, and that their beloved HuffPo will be run by a mainstream media organization.

What’s that sensation I’m feeling right now?  Ah.
