Democrats lose either way:
There is a Heritage study that claims
that Democrats are the "Party Of The Rich", and thus won't fight for the interests of the average Joe or Jane. It's classic statistics, torturing the data until it confesses (and there is a good rebuttal here
But the thing is, if the study showed that the Democrats were the "Party of the Poor", then they would be charged, as they have in the past, with waging Class Warfare
. You know, greedy poor folks who simply want to take stuff, for no good reason, from the wealthy.
Look on the bright side: at least our party will have a catchy new slogan:
The Democratic Party: We're damned if we do, we're damned if we don't.
Republicans suffer from class envy.
Are there no workhouses, are there no poor houses, are there no orphanages? Then let them die and decrease the surplus population.
Alternately, let them eat cake.
Repugs... Dirty commie rats.
