Sorry, this is just stupid to me, these are Muppets for crying out loud.

Maybe if people are critical of the rich there is a reason for it??

Awww poor wittle rich people, got your feelings hurt? Its not enough for you to enslave the we have to like you for it?

Cry me a river.

Eric Bolling, host of Fox's "Follow the Money" criticised the character of Tex Richman, the villain in the new The Muppets film.

"Liberal Hollywood depicting a successful businessman as evil? That's not new," he said.

Bolling added he came from a poor background and his parents would point out wealthy individuals as aspirational ideals, "not pointing the finger at Tex Richman and saying he's a bad guy".

Dan Gainor from the conservative Media Research Center took up the theme.

"This is a Muppet movie," said Gainor. "The only thing green that should be up there on that screen is Kermit the Frog."

Hey, who else but Fox to piddle all over a children's movie? Maybe the guy torturing cats on YouTube works for them. The concept of putting the rich guy as a bad guy as well has been around ever since the beginning of theater! Damn, have they whined about Mr Burns on the Simpsons? Tried to catch Robin Hood? Burn down freaking Disneyland, while at peak capacity no less yet? I'm amazed they haven't. May they enjoy a sound case of explosive displacement of their lower bowel regions this fine holiday season.

Depicting evil as a rich man in a business suit? Looking at the world today, this is a fact of life for the most part. But, then again, the same people that I hear harping about this stuff also seem to have a problem with self-evident facts of life on a regular basis
