Who the Heck is Thomas Piketty?

Meet the Left's new darling

Rarely has the mainstream media ever gotten this excited about an author before…and an author of economics, to boot. While chatting with Tom over at Grabien the other day, I was clued in to the latest bizarre obsession the news media has with a Leftie Frenchman. His name is Thomas Piketty, and although most Americans have no idea who he is, the media has already done its duty in helping him lock down a number one slot on the New York Times Best Seller List. Why? Because he’s out there pushing the so-called “income inequality” issue that another Socialist named Barack Obama loves to champion, of course.

If you think I’m exaggerating when I say the liberal media is absolutely fawning over this communist whackjob, have a look at the short video I assembled above. Love is most definitely in the air.
