No, You Don't Say...

Ms. Pickler belatedly learns that we are governed by plutocrats:

They're on the government payroll, but some of President Bush's top aides have millions of dollars in stocks, real estate and other investments, according to financial disclosure forms released Wednesday.

Read it all, it's a nice list.

Pickler's the worst of the AP (google her name through Atrios or Media Matters), so who knows what this is all about, but regardless this story was nice to see on the Yahoo's front page.

Yeah, of course it's a "coincidence" that they are all rich, or, at most, an "accident" of the system's structure and don't you know that these are all great men with the highest standards of rectitude and there's just no way that the biases of their class would influence government policy: that's just an outrageous thought. Yadda yadda yadda.
