BILLIONAIRE BLITZ The Billionaires for Bush got some good press over the weekend. From the New York Times Magazine's account of a recent Billionaire event on Long Island:
''How many of you Billionaires put somebody to work, huh?'' a Bush supporter named Nick Diaz shouted.

''Work?'' replied Phil T. Rich (otherwise known as Andrew Boyd). ''We've put 2.7 million people out of work.''

''You're barking up the wrong tree,'' Diaz huffed. ''Why are you here? Nobody's going to listen to you.''

But, of course, everybody was listening to them.

Gotta love 'em.
