The Rich Are Different

The intertubes today are rightfully all abuzz about the clueless rich people in the Hamptons who blabbed to a Los Angeles Times reporter about how intolerable it was that the “common people,” in this case “nails ladies” (!) and other riffraff had the “right to vote,” since they’re so dumb and all.
