You, with your lost job and your house in foreclosure and that letter from the fuel oil company that tells you that your price cap is going to be 61 percent higher than last year's. You with your cancer that your insurance company will no longer pay for. Quit your whining already. Things aren't so bad. I mean, look at Cindy McCain. She's going to pull in upwards of a cool $2 million without so much as lifting an impeccably-manicured fingernail -- simply by virtue of owning a bunch of Anheuser-Busch stock as part of her family's beer distributorship:

Cindy McCain, together with dependent children, earned $50,001-$100,000 in dividend income for 2007 from Anheuser-Busch shares, according to a Financial Disclosure Report filing on the Center for Responsive Politics' Web site.

Anheuser-Busch paid $1.25 dividend in 2007 per share, according to company filings.
