The rich vs. poor canard about Demos and Repubs appears again

My last post (see below) was about the enormous wealth backing Demo ideas. Then I read this in the New York Post Online Edition:

"I view the inauguration of Bush as a black Thursday for this country." — David Livingston, one of many Democrats attempting to organize an inauguration day economic boycott. THE silliness emanating from the precincts of the left con tinues. On Jan. 20 these dedicated anti-Bushies will "send America a message" by refusing to use their credit cards, buy gas or food, show up for work, etc. "We've tried marching in the streets to stop the war, we tried writing letters, we tried initiatives on the Web, but Bush doesn't listen. It seems to us the only thing Bush and the Republicans will listen to is money," said Livingstone. Here we go again: "thoughtful" Democrats raging against "heartless, only-care-about-money" Republicans, in a David vs. Goliath battle of "good and evil.
There's more, but this gives you an idea of the fact that the Demos are rooted in some 1930s Hollywood movie scenario with the fat cat, evil Republican capitalist and the honest poor Democrat. Don't they know the scenario is switched; that the labels have changed?
