Claire The Populist Pitchfork
Looks like our favorite Senator from Missouri is dusting off the old populist class-warfare tactic, hoping to secure her reelection next cycle.
Via Gateway Pundit:
She seems so righteously outraged, doesn’t she?
Listen, you little Twit: It is not your job to ‘punish’ the rich people, and attempt to buy your own popularity by giving it to us. YOUR job is to protect, defend, and uphold the constitution, not to wheel and deal your way to more and more power at our expense.
I know, you’ve never taken an ‘earmark,’ and for that I give credit. Now if the rest of you Washington Nitwits would do the same, we might have a chance at changing things. But supporting things like Health Control and Crap&Betrayed are worse than earmarks in my opinion.
And just so you know, Claire, you do not “give” the rich, or anyone else, for that matter, one thin dime by cutting taxes, (or in this case keeping tax rates where they are currently) it simply means you are stealing less from them.
As for ‘not getting it’ with the Tea Parties and anger at the town hall meetings, it’s obvious you dont’ get it either. We are sick of you and your colleagues power brokering games, the class warfare, and wealth redistribution. We are sick of you all trying to pit one group of us against the other.
As for the masses with the pitchforks, the so-called ‘rich’ you rail so mightily against would not be the target of those tines: It would be those who continue to defy the will of the American people to have a smaller, more efficient, and honest government. People like you.
To answer the question you posed at one of the “angry” town hall meetings last year: No, we don’t trust you! 2012 is closer than you think.
UPDATE: Ed has more on this at Hot Air.
