Philip Klein pivots off of the quote Ron Kind gave me in Wisconsin, when the congressman bemoaned that a "poor guy" like Russ Feingold might be booted out of the Senate.
But what makes Kind's remark odder still is his definition of"wealthy."
At a recent debate, Kind defended his support for raising taxes... so, under Kind's set of definitions, Feingold -- as anindividual earning $174,000 -- is a "poor person." Yet a household earning $250,000 is wealthy.
