How Not to Seem Rich While Running for Office

Mark Leibovich: "In recent years, American politics has been overrun by an adversity-theft epidemic. These days, the practice has infested campaigns across the country, at every level, wherever the tiresome same notes of media consultants can be heard -- as in, pretty much everywhere. It does not matter that the most recent hard knocks endured by many of today's politicians came well before they were born, as with Chris Christie, whose father worked in a Breyer's plant. We will still hear about it as if it were yesterday."
