I saw this last night and it was excellent. Fox news freaking out at Warren Buffett's call to tax the rich just a bit more, calling it class warfare, juxtaposed with Fox "pundits" calling for poor people to stop getting away with not paying any taxes (except social security/medicare/unemployment/etc). LOVE IT.

Seriously, FOX hates poor people. ["They are absolutely getting a free ride."] (And why not, theyre no use to them.) And gosh, those rich people are so injured by our complete disregard for their ability to continue paying 40K a night for a spacious and ridiculously luxurious villa at Ceasar's in Las Vegas. What is the world coming to? So those people who have a family of four making up to 22,350. per year ought to just pay up. Oh and kill NPR, that'll do it.

Fox: "...more skin in the game."

Jon: "That's the problem with poor people. They still have some of their skin."
