If you ever wanted to work out the pecking order that exists among various lefty groups, this news will give you some good data: “Condoleezza Rice will remain on Dropbox’s board of directors, according to a blogpost from founder and CEO Drew Houston. Rice’s recent appointment to the board drew some controversy among political opponents of the former secretary of state, who urged the file-sharing company to reverse its decision.”
So, we can deduce the following rungs on the hierarchy. In order (and note that there are missing rungs, of course):
- Gay marriage advocates.
- People concerned about the NSA.
- Pond scum.
- Ed Snowden / Glenn Greenwald supporters.
- Antiwar movement members.
I may have added one. Mostly because I can, without any repercussions at all.
