Hostess Bakery plants shut down last Friday, the result of a union strike idling some 18,000 workers. The federal government will hire most or all of these displaced employees. Meaning….
The State Department will hire the Twinkies, the Secret Service the Ho Hos, the generals will sleep with the Cupcakes, and all the Ding Dongs are going to Congress.
