This evening I ran acrossÃ‚Â an A.P. article about trial attorney John Edwards. The former VP candidate and Senator held something called an “anti-poverty conference”. TheÃ‚Â story is entitled “Edwards’ poverty conference sees middle class slipping“. As soon as the middle class not only slips, but falls, they’ll be handed Edwards’ business card.
Of interest was reading aboutÃ‚Â speakers at a conference hosted byÃ‚Â a wealthy trial attorney, who has tan lines in the shape of ambulance lights,Ã‚Â showing abject concernÃ‚Â on the issue ofÃ‚Â the enormously high cost of, for one example, health insurance.
It’s fairly laughable, really. A trial attorney and his friends complaining about high insurance rates is likeÃ‚Â the Menendez brothers whining about beingÃ‚Â orphans.
