Angry Image Of The Day

This image came across my Twitter feed. I traced a few retweets back to what I think is the original source.

Most observers will probably dismiss it as the failed efforts of a few 8th graders to be clever beyond their years, but this image seems to illustrate a simmering anger that politicians ignore at their peril. One can hear this sentiment in both tea party and left-wing populist rhetoric. The only difference is whether the plutocrats in question are the Koch brothers or George Soros. Its unclear what will happen if the angry left and right go beyond the "he's a rich jerk but he's our rich jerk" mindset and start viewing both the Kochs and Soros as jerks who are opposed to their best interests
