Quote of the Day
"We can be poor in spirit, and I don’t even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing."
-- Ann Romney, wife of obscenely wealthy Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and driver of "a couple of Cadillacs"
You know, I was looking for an excuse to link to something running over at Cracked right now and damn if Ann "I'm Not Wealthy" Romney didn't just hand it to me on an appropriately silver platter. I don't normally troll Cracked looking for insightful political commentary, but a piece called "6 Things Rich People Need To Stop Saying" flawlessly dissects the tone-deafness so many of the indignant wealthy have displayed over the past couple of years of widespread economic despair. It also shreds their supposed rationale for regularly trotting out such horseshit arguments.
For the record, Ann Romney's quote falls under number one on the list.
