It turns out rich people really are evil.

When I heard the news, I was mulling over the Republican candidate’s determined decision to be publicly proud of his wealth, and I wondered if he’d get off his leash in some small town where a reporter might ask him about it. But I suppose the story will drift off like they all do (some study somewhere just revealed rich people lie and cheat more than the rest of us).

The recent hard times aren’t going to change anything, but they did make it plainer than usual: what we all really want most to be is, well, bad.
