7. my son was INCENSED about this yesterday

And couldn't figure out why it wasn't all over the MSNBC shows we watch in the evening. But I think it was that "or less" that made Ed and Rachel cautious, and perhaps rightly so. On the other hand, his "No" about $100,000 being middle-class was a bit suspicious, but as we all know he's not a great speaker. So I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt--what I think is revealing is that it was so easy for everybody to assume that his definition of "middle class" is actually the top 1-2% of people. His reputation for being out of touch colors everything he says.
