So J. Danforth Quayle thinks and Times staff writer Itabari Njeri perpetuates the idea that the "partisan" audience at the vice presidential debate sneered at this "Nana's" advice, Midwestern advice. . . ."
Pleeeease! Coming from a multi-millionairess who married money, her grandson unwittingly presented her as a modern-day Marie Antoinette.
The reason the "partisan" (it's hard for me to call an audience made up of Republicans and Democrats partisan) audience burst into spontaneous laughter at Quayle's comment is for someone of such extreme wealth to say, "You can do anything you want to if you just set your mind to it and go to work," rings more than a little thin. Especially when every indication is that the philosophy this family of millionaires actually lives by is: "If you want it, buy it."
