Curb Your Enthusiasm

By

You're welcome, Larry David:

THERE is a God! It passed! The Bush tax cuts have been extended two years for the upper bracketeers, of which I am a proud member, thank you very much. I’m the last person in the world I’d want to be beside, but I am beside myself! This is a life changer, I tell you. A life changer!

To begin with, I was planning a trip to Cabo with my kids for Christmas vacation. We were going to fly coach, but now with the money I’m saving in taxes, I’m going to splurge and bump myself up to first class. First class! Somebody told me they serve warm nuts up there, and call you “mister.” I might not get off the plane!

Actually, given David's wealth, which is in the nine figures, I doubt he's flying coach out of price-consciousness. But I suppose a column about how the Bush tax cuts for the rich have spurred him to change nothing whatsoever wouldn't be as funny.
