Skip to comments.The Poor Little Rich Boy (John Edwards needs Freeper help)
Posted on 06/05/2007 2:01:17 PM PDT by Zakeet
Here is one of the funniest exchanges in Sunday's Democratic presidential debate;
Wolf Blitzer: What is a "rich person," Senator Edwards?
The Lovely and Talented John Edwards: I don't know if I know what a rich person is.
Reader Bart Harmon offers Edwards a little help:
You might be rich person if . . .
* You pay 400 bucks for a haircut, and that's with the ladies' day discount.
* Your house has more square footage than most Central American counties.
* You leave a larger carbon footprint than the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
* Your last three jobs were medical malpractice attorney, U.S. senator and hedge fund manager.
* You can talk easily about two Americas because you own at least one of them.
* You are paid $55,000 an hour to speak about poverty, and that's your college rate.

Ok Troops. Hairball needs your help.
I'm sure many of you Freepers will want to pitch in with an idea or two
that might help Breck Boy answer the question the next time it comes up.
A rich person is someone who earns above minmum wage and pays taxes.
A rich person is the one who owns 90% of a Pirate Treasure, instead of a measly 10%.
A rich person has eight children, a cat, two gerbils, two fish, eight children, a 15-passenger van, and an honest husband with a useful job.
Oops, that would imply 16 children. The cat distracted me by calling me a lawyer. (Her bowl is empty!)
Today Rush claimed that Breck Boy is planning to campaign soon in South Carolina with Danny Glover. Pretty amazing, considering the person Danny Glover normally campaigns for is Hugo Chavez.
Let the spanish Navy have the loot.
It is worth it to see silky the Pony cry like a baby.
A rich person is someone Tony Soprano comes to for a loan.
Bumper sticker: The Poor Little Rich Boy
I’m just a man of the people,. Camel’s my name and needles are my game.
Less children, more cats.
You’re rich if you have a “War on Terror” bumper sticker for both your Bentley and your Ferrari.
I have a Crazy Cat Lady buried deep inside ... she’ll come out when the kids all leave home :-).
That's what I am afraid of...number 3 of 4 goes to college this fall. Although I think I might be more inclined to be a crazy dog lady. I do have four cats now, however.
Edward’s idea of two Americas is so patently ridiculous it should have automatically banned him from running. But I forgot that Dem candidates are nothing if not ultimate demagogues. The idea that some American in the fiftyieth percentile is somehow living a horrible, poverty-stricken life is an insult to the country.
I will be POTUS before this Forest Gump sounding, ambulance chasing POS ever is.
He’s go no shot.
And he’s the only one that doesn’t seem to know it.
According to Al Gore, if you earn $250,000 for 4 years, you’re a millionaire (justifying “millionaire’s tax” that kicked in at $250K)...does this help?
