Scary.

Very interesting post at The Volokh Conspiracy, found via Brad Delong's site, which itself was found via Atrios. The gist of this seems to be that rich white Republicans believe that they are an oppressed minority deserving of protection. The ridiculous notion that people would be better off as slaves in America in the 1850s than as taxpayers in the 21st century is almost, but not quite, as ridiculous as Grover Norquist's assertion that paying the estate tax is the moral equivalent to the Holocaust.

You know, if they gave away most of their money, they'd be just like the rest of us.
