I Want My Non-Red Meat Meal and Fruit Only Dessert, and I Want It Now!

Via Debbie Schlussel

Another entitled government blowhard acting true to form. This time it's Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

Mr Rudd, who had attended the Pacific Islands Forum, was told by the 23-year-old flight attendant that his request for a "special" meal - he is on a meat-free diet - could not be met.

Sources said the PM reacted "strongly" and a heated exchange followed. The attendant burst into tears and reported the matter to the senior cabin attendant.

Apparently, it's happened before:

During a flight between Sydney and Canberra last June he became "extremely irritated" when the only food on offer was gourmet sandwiches, rather than a hot meal, a source said.

These trips are costing the Australian taxpayers $28,000 an hour.

Where's the humility? Kevin Rudd works for the taxpayer, not the other way around.
