Your Morning Moment of Zen

Newsweek: "Rich are Feeling 'Luxury Shame'"

Stop the ACLU: Obama Buys his Wife a $30,000 "Thank You" Ring

Of course, if you have no sense of shame to begin with...

The other day I head Obama on the radio criticizing the Big Auto leaders for flying into Washington on three separate, luxury corporate jets to ask for massive government handouts. Obama's criticism was actually pretty wussy, but something to the effect of "I think they are tone-deaf to what's going on in America." I was surprised to note that I agree with him completely: the substance is meaningless, but the tone of the thing makes them look bad.
