The unforgiving minute

Political pop quiz:

Who's more out of touch with the average American: The guy who's a crappy bowler, or the guy who thinks that earning $200,000 makes you middle class?

And as long as we're at it, let's take a moment to sympathize with former Senator Trent Lott, who never met a minimum wage hike he didn't like voting against, complaining that after 30 years of never having to pay for lunch in Congress, he'll now have to buy his own lunches (or at least expense account them) as a high-paid lobbyist. (He's learning how to use public transportation, too. Wonder how long that'll last? The trouble with public transportation, after all, is that you usually have to come in contact with "the public.")

And of course, no one's really sure when Ronald Reagan stopped having to carry cash--certainly long before he came to the White House.

Minute's up.
