Rick Santorum Journeys to a Fortified Refuge of the 1%

The wealthy have their own schools and their own police, and so on and so on. It’s kinda’ like living in a South American country where the wealthy elites never have to see or interact with the smelly peons. Oh wait a minute, it’s exactly like that. It’s just that the peons are still laboring under the illusion that they are viewed as something besides overweight, lazy, unworthy burdens. It must be nice in there. By the way, to attend Santorum little event, you had to pay $2,500 a head.

Some people are more equal than others.

Santorum, who is competing with Mitt Romney for front-runner status in the GOP race, spoke to a group of supporters during a private fundraiser in the gated community of Vaquero, one of the most high-end neighborhoods in the country.

(From later in the article)

Police cars were parked near the security-patrolled Westlake enclave as a steady stream of vehicles entered the neighborhood, home to residents such as conservative political commentator Glenn Beck, Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, BNSF Railway CEO Matthew Rose and pro golfer Ben Crane. Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, formerly a Ranger, owns a home there that he is leasing out to New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton.
