I agree, it was 'appropriate'. Like a communist elitist splashing mud on line of weary proleteriat, while speeding by in his chauffer-driven car while the lowly wait in line for bread ... and laughing.
Look, millions died. Starved during collectivization ... the elite didn't miss a chance to sip champagne.
All very appropriate for post-Revolution Russia ... the reason the Kronstadt sailors rebelled ... realizing what was to come ... what is to come for us if Obama and his followers get to own a country for another term??
