The rich get richer:

Teresa Heinz Kerry, through a network of investments in blue-chip corporations, venture capital funds and municipal bonds, controls a family fortune worth an estimated $1 billion, an examination of public records shows.

The $1-billion figure is double the estimates of her wealth that are widely cited in news stories about her husband, Massachusetts Sen. John F. Kerry, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president.

Honestly, good for them. Now if John-boy will just drop the populist nonsense.

Dropping the populist mantra means losing his voting base. Billionaire Republicans are simply greedy and evil. Billionaire Democrats on the other hand are philanthropic saintly types who are there to help us.

Should Kerry win in November, I will at least garner some small satisfaction by telling my liberal friends how our country is being run by Big Ketchup.
