James Taranto at OpinionJournal passes along this reader comment on John Edwards from the debate the other night:
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 countries.
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.
More shallow unseriousness from Democrats like this and even Ron Paul can win in November 2008.
