My sister explains it to me

Heh. On the subject of the Right's demonizing 'millionaires', my sister says:

What you're seeing is Republican 'values' in action. It's simple once you understand those values. Observe --

Marrying a woman who inherited a fortune gained through the harmless manufacture of condiments - bad.

Inheriting a fortune that your grandaddy made doing business with the Nazis in violation of the Trading With The Enemy Act - good.

Becoming rich through your own efforts as a trial lawyer taking on corporations that maim children - bad.

Becoming rich through your own efforts doing business with state sponsors of terrorism Iran, Iraq, and Libya - good.

See how easy it is?

Well, yeah, once it's explained...
