On today’s Best of the Web Today, James Taranto quotes this from Talking Points Memo:

TPM is looking for a new web intern who’ll be responsible for various aspects of on-going site design, site maintenance, assistance administering the TPM community site, TPMCafe, and work on our various projects like . . . our new tracking of which members of Congress are supporting President Bush’s Gulf Coast Wage Cut [suspension of the Davis-Bacon Act]. . . .

This is an unpaid internship.

And he comments:

When your money is at stake, Marshall is willing to let unions dictate wages. When it comes to his own money, he not only refuses to pay prevailing wages, he won’t even pay the minimum wage–or indeed any wage at all! Just who is trying to bamboozle whom here?
