Well yes, the rich will allow you to climb pretty high, but only as long as you serve their interests.

Some guy calls Chomsky a moron, I find that rather moronic (that is, calling Chomsky a moron, not calling someone a moron), so in general terms he exposed himself as a moron by calling someone else a moron, and I put that forth as a nicety. It simply does not follow that I find the act of calling someone a moron moronic per se.
