What Is Wrong With Alberta Darling?

While visiting the Snidely Whiplash show, Alberta Darling told Mark Belling that people who make over $250,000 a year are "not wealthy".

Now that's not Koch wealthy for sure, but at 10 times the average per capita income in Wisconsin, it ain't nothing either. The Siren can imagine thousands of Wisconsinites who wish they were so poor.

Here's her statement:
I just went to a woman today and she said, “Why are you giving tax breaks to the wealthy?” I said, “What do you consider wealthy?” She said, “$250,000 and above.”And I said “that is small business.” Those are small business people.Those aren’t wealthy people.We are not interested in raising taxes on the quote “rich.”
Geez, and we thought Robin Vos was the only arrogantly out-of-touch ass in the area.
