Representatives of Meritocracy

The last two Republican presidents – and the last two Republican presidential candidates, have, shall we say, inherited wealth and status – and the GOP is well on its way to nominating a third member of the lucky sperm club – and the last two Democratic Presidents have come from far more humble beginnings (Clinton more so that Obama, even).



  1. Best quote I ever heard about George W. Bush was that he was the sort of guy who was born on third base but thinks he’s hit a triple.

  2. That was the late, great Ann Richards, and she said it – originally – about W’s father.

    Or it might have been Jim Hightower. But it was about dad.
