Just when you thought Mitt Romney might have shown a touch of class and humility with his concession speech, he goes and does this.
It takes some serious brass balls to be that much of an asshole.
Any reader who still thinks Republican politicians are basically decent people should, by now, be disabused of the notion. In their words and deeds, they reflect on a personal level the attitude they bring to the government and the people it’s responsible for. If you’re just some wage-earning schmuck, you’re not worth treating with any basic respect.
But if you’re George W. Bush’s “base” – the haves and have-mores – roll out the red carpet! Enable the ongoing plunder of the middle class and the poor for the benefit of a tiny sliver of the upper crust!
Thus is born the 99%/1% paradigm. One percenters get the gold, ninety-nine percenters get the coal.
