The Twinkie defense

From Balloon Juice, which adds:

The last three decades of unprecedented growth in wealth for the ultra-rich while unions are smashed, pay remains stagnant for everyone else, and the middle and lower classes have been crushed is the direct cause in the change of the attitudes of the electorate.
And we see these stories every single day. Millionaire CEO’s who own pizza companies are going to attack their employees because they want… health care. Conservatives want to blame workers making barely livable wages while trying to elect people who spent their lives getting filthy rich gutting other people’s pensions.

It’s a backlash, and the wealthy few have no one to blame but themselves. They started the class warfare three decades or more ago, and have been winning. But folks are tired of being mired in poverty and watching the elite few run over the middle class in their Mercedes. It’s really that simple.
