Gah, I can’t take the stupid! Obama and Socialism. *headdesk*

Good morning.  It’s 11:38 AM.  I fell asleep at 7 AM.   I am tired and cranky and would like to raise a hefty middle finger to the Drudge Report, which has been increasingly pissing me off since its posting about the crazy, attention-seeking chick with the backwards B carved into her face.

It is no surprise that a week before the election is the appropriate time for the Marxism rhetoric.  Because tying Obama to the name of a man who died long before industrial capitalism was effectively replaced by finance capitalism is now the most effective way to propagate fear, since calling him a Muslim obviously wasn’t working.

All reasonable onlookers of Drudge’s latest headline —  2001 OBAMA: TRAGEDY THAT 'REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH' NOT PURSUED BY SUPREME COURT —  say, wtf, Matt Drudge, what is this bullshit.

The video in scrutiny shows, quote Huffington Post, “Barack Obama in law professor mode discussing the limitations of the court and his belief that the legislative process is the appropriate way to pursue economic justice. (Which if memory serves – accords with the conservative preference to eliminate judges who legislate from the bench.)”

My favorite gay, libertarian blogger says, “He was making a case against using courts to implement broad social goals – which is, last time I checked, the conservative position.”

Yes, Obama is a socialist.  Because progressive taxation is totally the slippery slope to replacing private means of production.  Yay labour theory of value!  Boo marginal utility!   Most people have no idea what I’m talking about because most people can neither define nor spell proletariat.

God forbid we become a “socialist country much like Sweden,” the country with world’s highest democracy index, which ranks higher than the United States in per capita GDP, literacy rates, life expectancy, and oh– happiness.

Fuck you, Matt Drudge.  Fuck you.
