Petulant professionals stamp their feet and declare that if Obama is going to raise their taxes they just won’t work so much. Journalist Emily Friedman of ABC takes their petty tantrums seriously, as if these two women are representative of the 5% who make over a quarter of a million dollars a year. I don’t know, maybe they are. But if that is so, they are a whiny lot. The second woman in the piece goes on about how much she works for so long that it makes me think she is exaggerating just a tad.
And even though this will probably just last for a day or two in the blogosphere — It looks like Rahm called it yesterday on Face the Nation. Limbaugh gave a long rambling error filled speech at the wingnut gathering on Saturday and then Michael Steele says some truthful, but not complimentary things about Limbaugh. Limbaugh goes on a tyraid. Steele apologizes to Limbaugh. It’s like they were just following Rahm’s directions.
Who was it that said that Obama shouldn’t call out Limbaugh? Oh yeah, Bill Bennett and Michael Berry.
