Wanker Of The Day, Bipartisan Edition

From the left, Obama adviser David Axelrod:

Yesterday, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel told America he sees the use of taxpayer money to pay AIG million-dollar bonuses as an unimportant distraction…. Now today, White House adviser David Axelrod insists nobody cares about AIG ripping off taxpayers. “People are not sitting around their kitchen tables thinking about AIG,” he told the Washington Post.

Because that’s not tone-deaf at all.  No-one is even remotely offended by the notion that white-collar crooks are being paid millions of dollars of our money as a reward for their role in crashing the economy, except maybe a few peasants.

Which leads me once again to the leader of the GOP, once again showing us how he feels about the little people:

Further widening the rift on the issue between conservatives in the media, such as himself, and conservatives in Congress, Limbaugh went on to air Rep. Ed Royce’s (R-CA) rationale for voting yea on the House bill to tax AIG bonuses at 90 percent, and claimed that Obama voters will love a 90-percent tax rate “because Obama and the Democrat Party have been ginning up hatred and class envy for corporate executives and the achiever class in this country for years, for decades.”

Because everyone who isn’t a gazillionaire is a pathetic lazy slacker who’s never accomplished anything and has no value to society.  Epic Populism Fail.
