During which time she’ll rail against the ultra rich — “the top 2%” — whom as we all know don’t contribute their fair share, worried as they are over vulgar bourgeois concerns like profit and expansion, the greedy covetousness of which is an affront to the noble poor and the free-market oppressed who are compelled to collect disability and food stamps and housing vouchers as a direct result of the success of others.

And sorry, but I too have my priorities.
