WASHINGTON, D.C.--The party of Kennedy, Kerry and Gore is shocked - shocked and appalled! - that a rich man might be the standard bearer of the Republican party come November.
"If Romney becomes the nominee you can bet the Dems will forget about Gore's gigantic mansion or Kerry having married into a ketchup empire. They'll conveniently forget that Obama's lucrative book sales have put him in the top .01 percent," said one media analyst.
A Democratic operative said, "Fortunately President Obama will have a billion dollars to spend getting out his message that the Republican candidate is too rich."
