This guy takes a pretty good shot at Nancy Pelosi:

The other event that captured my attention was the coronation of Nancy Pelosi. Now I realize that the Presidential Succession Act of 1947, for reasons I can’t begin to fathom, has ordained that the Speaker of the House is next in line after the Vice-President to ascend to the presidency should there ever be that void to fill. So nobody should be too surprised if, within the next couple of years, Rep. Pelosi spearheads a movement to impeach both Bush and Cheney. Judging by her self-aggrandizing rhetoric on the day she was sworn in, it’s obvious that she obviously regards herself as Queen of America, and has already begun daydreaming about new drapes for the Oval Office.

With all of her silly babble about raising the marble ceiling, making all things possible for all women, you’d have thought Mrs. Pelosi had actually accomplished something
truly magnificent. As it is, considering the number of women who have been elected governor and senator in America in elections that required garnering more than a few thousand votes in a congressional race, she merely came across as pompous and silly. And just in case she never noticed, nations such as England, Israel, Pakistan and the Philippines, have already been led by women. So much for that marble ceiling.

When you get right down to it, Mrs. Pelosi is really just another wealthy Democrat trying to pass herself off as a populist. To listen to her yammer, you’d think she carried her lunch in a paper bag and actually worked for a living. Furthermore, as a congresswoman, she represents a district in the least representative city in America. If San Francisco isn’t the single most liberal municipality in the country, it is certainly the most libertine.

Oh, and as far as extremely wealthy populists, let's don't forget John Edwards. Which of the "two Americas" did he build this house in?
Knight approved the building plans that showed the Edwards home totaling 28,200 quare feet of connected space. The main house is 10,400 square feet and has two garages. The recreation building, a red, barn-like building containing 15,600 square feet, is connected to the house by a closed-in and roofed structure of varying widths and elevations that totals 2,200 square feet.
Hey, I don't have anything against rich people; in fact, I like them. In many ways they help to drive our economic boat. But don't be phony and try to pass yourselves off as commoners. Don't pretend you know what it is like to sweat the monthly bills.
