I know pointing to unintentional self-parody in The Nation is a little too easy (A magazine funded by rich people, written by rich people, read by rich people complaining about the rich is just a whole new level of self-parody - it's like The Onion without the selfawareness), but this time I just couldn't resist.

I'm waiting for their column denouncing political rags that are pet projects of the rich who's primary goal is to make sure the rich stay that way and the poor do too...
