Suckers

A small-time school superintendent’s $750,000/year payday. High-living union goons pillaging their members’ dues. Cecile Richards’s half-million-a-year payday for lending her name to the abortion trade. Al Gore renting his scanty charms for $200 million over the course of a few years. Equality crusader Elizabeth Warren, a multimillionaire “public servant” holding forth in her Cambridge mansion. Paul Krugman’s $25,000-a-month proffer from an income-inequality think tank.

And, now: Bill Clinton’s $1,000 cigars.

Mitt Romney flies coach.

At what point do you so-called progressives start feeling like suckers?
