Living the High Life

According to gossip columnist Richard Johnson of Page Six, the Obamas aren't waiting to get to The White House to live the high life.  When Barack was at a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria last week, his wife called room service and ordered

lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar and champagne.

Sounds pretty tasty -- and pretty expensive.  I guess that's one way of "spreading the wealth around."

Look, I don't begrudge the Obamas their caviar and lobster.  I like lobster, too (caviar? not so much).  It's just that the whole mentality strikes me as typical of Democrat thinking. 

In that world view, the "government class" -- those who "care" about the poor -- are entitled to caviar and lobster, although it may seem sharply at odds with their much-touted kinship to "working people."  But "the rich" -- who can afford to purchase caviar and lobster because of their own hard work and talent -- are to be demonized as "greedy," eating lobster and caviar is to be touted as evidence of "excess," and their wealth is to be spread around.
