68. Or . . . "being" Bush into the argument provides an accurate example
of what you're talking about.

The Bush twins may get some awesome jobs through their connections "in the next year or so." That would mean they'll have been 3 or 4 years out of college doing little but partying. Those are the types of privileged offspring you should be pissed about.

I'm well aware of all the connected relatives who get jobs from politicians, so don't assume I'm ignoring any facts. I'm calling you on the claim that Chelsea Clinton, whose parents made their own success in one generation, deserves to be pounded as an "aristocrat." She can't undo the fact that her parents are well-known, but, unlike the Bush twins, she seems to take her own life seriously.
