Acknowledge the mob with a little gesture, oh, mighty one . . .

This is great. Hillary Clinton has complained of being "dead broke," after being accused of being insufficiently sensitive to and knowledgeable about folks like 99% of the U.S. population. She demands and gets about $250,000 a speech on the speaking circuit.

She says she pays taxes on the money, so, she's not rich; she's just an ordinary working woman.

But she's mindful of the criticism she's received for her poor little me posturing. Because -- well, how often do you or anyone you know get paid a quarter million dollars to say what's on your mind? Ever.

So, she has taken what, for her and her ilk, is the high road. She has decided to give away the money she gets from public speaking.

Who is she going to give it to? Why, the Clinton Foundation, of course.

She has a reputation. It remains unchanged.
