    (that we know about) can assuage a lot of "existential crisis."  The only problem with having more money than you'll ever know what to do with is that the only thing then left to you is amassing power.  And knowing that you're going to be prevented from taking power (especially by the riff raff) may be disconcerting to an ego, but it's not deadly.

      People in Mitt's income strata. Many are amazingly sensitive and insecure. You'd never know it looking from outside.

      Money doesn't help much as existential crises go. sure, you have enough money to bury the pain long enough to possibly ignore it, but its still there. these men cant stand a single quiet moment, and shit like this is why.  I think he's ripe for it.

      For the record, I am not a member of Courtesy Kos. Just so you know. Don't be stupid. It's election season. My patience is short.
