Who knew? Danny DeVito brought the Teamsters out of their seats last week at the 28th Convention. The director of the 1992 film "Hoffa" gave a passionate speech about sticking together in the union, and the crowd ate it up.
Of course when you stand in front of 6,000 Teamsters and call Scott Walker a "jamoke" and a "bum," you're bound to get some enthusiastic applause.
Or when you say things like,
They should know better than to tangle with the Teamsters!And,
How about outsourcing the CEOs and bringing the jobs back to the USA?DeVito was just one of several terrific speakers at the Convention. Vice President Joe Biden, Ohio Rep. Steve LaTourette and Cory Booker -- to name just a few -- gave great speeches. Tom Morello and Christopher Duffley gave tremendous singing performances.
