    Warren needs to call in for backup his tempting cousin, Hometown Buffet.

    Didn’t B2 need a bailout from the Saudis when his oil company went bust?

    You know why I hate the rich? Cause they had the balls and ambition to do what I was too comfortable to do. bleeep, what made me think I could afford a family and happiness? Those people forgot that for success. Jealous? bleeeped straight! Why should they succeed when I didn’t. Tax everyone who makes more than me.

    This message brought by the DNC.

    And the Bush bashing continues unabated. The “assisted living” line is really funny, but for the poster children of that way of life, look to the Eastern Elite, particularly anyone that has a last name that rhymes with Kennedy.

    SO, does anyone think that the twins will ever run for office? Did that virginian take the bush name when he married into the family? I don’t think Jebs kids will run, except for that Naval Reserve officer. There’s also a third unknown Bush.

    There’s way more than enough embarrassing skeletons in any successful politician’s family closet to repopulate Sodom and Gomorrah. This includes the Bushes, the Kennedys, the Roosevelts, Lincoln, Jefferson, Washington, and every royal family that ever walked the earth. Shall we just agree that all politicians have things they’d rather keep hidden, and let it go at that?

    And yesterday, the pathetic Harry Reid refuses to bring to the Senate floor a vote to end the Bush tax cuts for these freeloaders. Afraid the Republicans might run campaign ads against him. Like they won’t anyway. Disgraceful. I’m starting to agree with the tea-partiers. The Democrats deserve to lose. Gutless bustards.

    Trudeau’s message of the week:”If you’re rich, gimme! gimme! gimme!” Just beautiful.

    Sheik - everyone knows the Buffet line goes way back…

    CluelessReader - yeah, if I tax Warren or Bill just three more percent, they’ll be just like me…riiight!

    Iamthelamex - The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is where Warren left most of his fortune, has an endowment of 33 BILLION, of which not a single dollar is attributable to Garry Trudeau. You should talk to the super-rich about convincing other super-rich to donate their richness to the richest rich foundation of the rich…eh, never mind

    No one denies that about the Kennedys either, Sandfan, but John Kennedy’s brief presidency was much better than that of either Bush.

    Lew, please read what I wrote yesterday. I would hate to have to re-post it here today.

    Waiting, I agree that the Senate Democrats have been gutless. Think of how much more they would have accomplished if they had challenged the Teapublicans to hold a REAL filibuster. Senator Reid plays too often for the tie, not the win. At the same time, electing a bunch of ignorant wackos who want to turn America into Greece (“Save the expensive social programs! Just cut my taxes!”) will not solve the problems of the Senate’s lack of backbone.

    No, Lorax, Doonesbury’s message is that the extraordinarily wealthy can give much more than they are to help the world in which they have been so materially successful. I know that Lew is so jealous of the wealthy that he wants to guard all their wallets, but does anyone else see a problem with Doonesbury’s point here?

    longtimecomicsfan, the point is that Gates chose to do this with his money that he earned. Big difference than the goverment taking it and giving it to ACORN. Yes, lets get rid of all the rich. One problem is that the poor don’t hire anyone. That would mean all jobs would have to be goverment jobs. It’s been tried and guess what? It doesn’t work.

    I can’t think of a better argument for the estate tax.
