Top Ten Plutocratic Mitticisms So Far

Go to TPM for the whole list and its hilarious annotation (also including evergreen "who let the dogs out" video):
1. “I’m also unemployed” (June 16, 2011)
2. “Corporations are people, my friend” (August 11, 2011)
3. “I’m running for office for Pete’s sake, we can’t have illegals” (October 18, 2011) ...
5. “I like being able to fire people” (January 9, 2012)
6. “There were a couple of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip” (January 8, 2012) …
8. “I’ve always been a rodent and rabbit hunter. Small varmints, if you will.” (April 5, 2007)
9. “Don’t try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom.” (October 17, 2011) …
And counting.
