Dems worried about union intimidation

Now, I wasn't at Redstate when the whole Card Check debate was going on, but, needless to say, Redstate was right, and the Democrats were wrong.
What is so funny today is that the Hillary Clinton people, after getting beaten trying to reduce the power of the culinary union, are screaming about union intimidation. One diarist over at MyDD captured the problem like this:
This is an open caucus. Union members will be standing in the same room with other union members. Or maybe even their shop steward. Or their foreman. Or possibly even a union official. Everyone will know which candidate you're backing. And if you're a member of Culinary Workers Local 226, and you don't caucus for Senator Obama???
Lemme get the argument straight. Secret ballots are important to protect you in a caucus from union thugs, but not in a vote in a unionized shop?
I love watching the Democrats. They are validating our arguments about the Democrat Party. They prove the deep strain of racism in their party. They prove our arguments about union thuggery. They have a couple more weeks to give us more attacks... Fun fun fun.
