E PLURIBUS MORON

Keep your government hands off my medicare!

Finally, someone is paying attention to Rich Men

If you watch Fox News, and I know you do (I’ve seen the erotic poetry you’ve written for Greta Van Sustren and it’s…disturbing…) you’d know that America’s most oppressed demographic is rich men.

Well someone is finally doing something good for this long suffering group of citizens (besides inventing cigars wrapped in gold): Discovery Networks, the parent company of the Discovery channel, has announced it will ingeniusly create a new station called “Velocity” that will cater towards rich white men with shows like “an upscale sailing race that touches on five oceans, travel programming to upscale locations, adventure sports and ‘real-life adrenaline shows'”.

Now I know what you’re saying: there already is a cable network for rich white men called live broadcasts from the Senate floor on C-SPAN. But what a snooze fest! I for one can’t wait to see their reboot of The West Wing starring Donald Trump. Or Mitt Romney. Really would be fun to watch either demand that his Chief of Staff re-poach his endangered grouse eggs.

This announcement probably shows how well rich people are doing in the Great Recession. While “Velocity” prepares cooking shows about $1,000 hamburgers and ice cream sundaes, the rest of the country is watching Extreme Couponing and trying to figure out which of their dogs to eat for Easter dinner…
