Etan Thomas

He's a forward for the Washington Wizards.
I copied most of the good text but theres the link.

At the September 24, Washington, D.C., rally to end the Iraq War, Thomas hammered back at the right wing chorus: "I'd like to take some of these cats on a field trip," he told the crowd of more than a 100,000. "I want to get big yellow buses with no air conditioner and no seatbelts and round up Bill O'Reilly, Pat Buchanan, Trent Lott, Sean Hannity, Dick Cheney, Jeb Bush, Bush Jr. and Bush Sr., John Ashcroft, Giuliani, Ed Gillespie, Katherine Harris, that little bow-tied Tucker Carlson and any other right-wing conservative Republicans I can think of, and take them all on a trip to the 'hood....I want to drop them off and leave them there, let them become one with the other side of the tracks, get them four mouths to feed and no welfare, have scare tactics run through them like a laxative, criticizing them for needing assistance."
In his tour, Thomas would "show them working families that make too much to receive welfare but not enough to make ends meet. I'd employ them with jobs with little security, let them know how it feels to be an employee at will, able to be fired at the drop of a hat."

I like the plan, hell we could make it a reality show, use the profits to help Katrina victims. Its kinda like a combination of the shows 30 days and that filthy rich cattle drive. Take a bunch of rich elitist that have never had to work a minimum wage job in there lives let them try to survive in a city with no government support, let them work at fast food joints. Find jobs that only require a GED or no education at all. No republican left behind. This is an idea, the key is making sure that they have no assess to outside funds at all. give them each ten bucks and a resume and let them go for a few months. Thats a show I would watch. we could probably pitch it to fox, but they would make it seem like it was fun and everyone would love working at burger king. Imagine if Condoleezza Rice was arrested for being black while driving (a crime according to Chappelle's show) and couldnt call her buddys to bail her out. That would be hilarious. Im not sure which station to try to pitch this one to. Maybe as a documentary movie, like supersize me. anyway I gotta go. Now we just gotta come up with a catchy name for the show.
