More on the One Percenters

Turns out the doc execs at HBO are annoyed about 33 percent of our nation's wealth in the hands of one percent of Americans.

Jamie Johnson, heir to the Johnson and Johnson fortune, directed "Born Rich" for HBO. He recently finished "The One Percent." It premiers Saturday, 21.Feb.

[Update: According to the interview on HBO's website, Johnson has aimed the film at the "vastly rich" in an effort to help them understand why maintaining and increasing the gap between them and the rest of the country is a bad idea. Why do I think his argument will fall on deaf ears?]

Well, according to Michele Bachmann, we're running out of rich people in this country, so Mr. Johnson should quit whining, stop being a traitor to his tribe, and get back to the compound.

Amen.

Bachman and Coulter make up their own tribe, the bowers and scrapers of the political-media nexus.

My contempt for them is monumental.
