Jenna Jameson cuts to the heart of the matter

Quote of the Day

"When you're rich, you want a Republican in office."

— Porn star Jenna Jameson, quoted by CBS News, endorsing Mitt Romney for president at a San Francisco strip club.
Actually, the rich, unlike many other people, have mostly been doing fine during the Obama administration (not least because Obama and the Democrats saved the economy from going over the edge into a full-scale depression). They also did fine, incidentally, during the Clinton administration. And even if they wind up paying slightly higher taxes, at Clinton-era rates, they'll still be doing fine. But that doesn't prevent them from whining that they are being mistreated, and that any failure to accord them total deference ("class warfare")  is somehow bad, not just for them, but for the public interest. Jenna Jameson, at least, seems to have been straightforward about her reasons for supporting Romney ... now that she's gotten rich herself.
