The political cartoon above was drawn by Elliot Banfield whose work is often published in Claremont Review of Books. Writer and frequent Peak Stupidity commenter E.H. Hail has a very interesting analysis of this depiction of America's current elites here on his Hail to You blog.
It's great to read another post by Mr. Hail (been too long!) I'll leave it at that here and ask the reader to check out his take on the types of people represented there in the balloon and possibly comment.
I've always wanted to take my family up for a balloon ride just once. As a non-member of the Ruling Class, I will forego the champagne and just bring a six-pack of Miller High-Life instead.
I also always liked this song. It's by The 5th Dimension from 53 years ago. They weren't Ruling Class, but they did clean up at the Grammies.
Lastly, for the kids, I had a favorite book back in my childhood from the Time-Life "Yearling" series called The Twenty-one Balloons. I highly recommend it for 9 to 12 y/o boys.
