A quick survey of events over the last few days shows just where the hoi pilloi stand with the elites.

In Wisconsin this weekend yet another mass rally took place with a predictable result from our self-declared betters:

Fox Yappers Go Crazy Over Michael Moore Saying We’re Not Broke and the Rich Need to Pay More in Taxes

How dare he, does he not remember his place…or that he’s fat?

And Atrios summed up the concern of the MSNBC newsroom:

I wonder what Andrea Mitchell is sacrificing for the new austerity.

It certainly won’t be listening to her husband’s stories about Ayn Rand:

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said a surge in U.S. government “activism,” including fiscal stimulus, housing subsidies and new regulations, is holding back the economic recovery.

Because goodness knows, old Alan’s hands are completely clean of any responsibility for the problems to begin with. And now he shall go on the “I’m totally blameless and awesome tour” with Donald Rumsfeld.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
