I'm periodically told how Republicans are for the rich and Democrats are for the working man. I'm told how corporations give so much money to Republicans, and Democrats can barely keep up. This is sometimes used as a justification for why unions should be entitled to my money, by law in California, so they can give it to political candidates--countering the corporate donations to Republicans.
People who try to feed others that crap have their heads stuck in another time (must.resist.urge.to.make.wisecrack--darn, didn't entirely resist the urge, did I?), as the list of contributors to President Obama's campaign makes abundantly clear.
