The Mask Slips

"For the nitwits who vote for the man or woman they'd most like to have over for dinner...I suggest you take a look at how well your 401(k) is doing, or how easy it will be to meet the mortgage this month, or whether the college fund you've been trying to build for your kids is as robust as you'd like it to be....Voting has consequences."
