Good luck with this meme pal. Ohio Gov. John Kasich and former Lehman Brothers executive once again trying to pretend he's some kind of populist on this Sunday's State of the Union on CNN:

BORGER:BORGER: how do you respond to that, that - that Americans believe that - that Republicans are too close to Wall Street, that Wall Street is too greedy?

KASICH: Well, I've said all along that I think there's too much greed on Wall Street. And it's - you know, and the reason I say it is because I saw it. And - and the fact is, there's nothing wrong with making money. There's a lot of good.

But you can't just be totally dedicated to making money without, you know, sort of doing some good in the process.

BORGER: There's a little Elizabeth Warren in you...

KASICH: No, I'm - look, John Kasich is all - maybe there's a little bit of me in her.

I don't think Elizabeth Warren is going to be possessed by the heart of a former Wall Street executive any time soon. If he's serious about throwing his hat into the 2016 GOP presidential clown car, comparing himself to Elizabeth Warren isn't going to win him any favors with their wingnut base either.

Can you help us out?
