Slipping on a Banana Peel

Look, folks, this Chiquita case is really pretty simple.

So, Chiquita is saying that it paid protection money to Colombian paramilitary thugs in violation of anti-terrorism law in order to keep doing business there. And when they met with Chertoff to say they know it's illegal but they need some help -- they say Chertoff said we'll get back to you, wink wink. And then they got caught officially.

I said it once, I'll say it again: when you buy a government, you're entitled to a little customer service. And now the government has the gall to try to enforce the law against this poor company. It's disgraceful.

I'm telling you, when Big Daddy becomes president, we'll make sure that the U.S. government gets serious about customer service.
