The intellectually vapid Joel Stein recently wrote an outrageous column in the Los Angeles Times entitled “I don't support our troops." http://www.latimes.com/news/columnists/la-oe-stein24jan24,0,1168298.column?coll=la-news-columns
Radio talk show host and legal scholar Hugh Hewitt interviewed Stein and got the young man to blurt out the following:
“JS: I'm sure I make more...if they make $25,000, I'm sure I make more.
HH: But I mean, are you making twice as much as they are?
JS: Sure, yeah.
HH: Three times?
JS: Um, how much do they make?
HH: Let's just say $25,000 for an entry level guy. Are you making three times?
JS: Um, I make a significant amount more than them...”
It is a mistake not to recognize the importance of financial earnings when we discuss the subconscious motivations of the hate George W. Bush crowd. Many of these people are paid handsome salaries solely because of their loyalty to the liberal postmodernist establishment. They often possess credentials that are highly questionable. In his heart of hearts, left wingers like Joel Stein rightfully sense that a growing red state cultural milieu is not favorable to their economic advantage.
