Katniss sure has a knack for picking rebellious friends, eh? Maybe because Katniss herself is quite subversive, though she doesn’t understand it at this time.
Both Gale and Katniss seem to presume that, since the station of life the Merchants are in seems to much better than their own in the Seam, the Merchants they come in contact with on the regular are not going to question things like they are. Katniss says as much several times during the Games, when she assumes that Peeta’s life has been easier because he grew up in the bakery.
Neither seem to realize that life for the Merchants is only marginally better than life is in the Seam. It’s a part of the tactic Snow uses to keep them divided against each other, since along with this feeling comes resentment towards Merchants from the Seam. And as Mrs. Mellark suggests later, there’s a good chance the Merchants look down their nose at those in the Seam.
But clearly this is not the case for all, as Madge, Peeta, and Mr. Mellark will all show us. What’s also interesting is how, in Gale’s quickness to dismiss Madge, he’s overlooking someone who could easily be an ally and kindred spirit in his railings against the Capitol. Because if Katniss is right about Madge’s sarcasm - and I’m guessing she is, given her later actions - Madge has some opinions of her own about the system.

Something’s wrong with my eyes. My vision blurs in and out of focus as I strain to make the two moons floating up in the sky into one.
