Marc Ambinder at the Atlantic makes a couple good points about the whole silly socialism card. The first, I'd been thinking about, but thought was too obvious to spend time writing about. The second, I hadn't spent enough time considering. Until now.
This socialism thing.
A, it would have been more convincing had McCain opposed the original bailout and not proposed austerity for everyone and then ruled out lots of programs and then proposed lots of new spending.
B - Palin is going on about Obama and wealth redistribution.
Palin taxed oil company profits and cut $1200 checks for every Alaskans.
That's spreading the wealth. Redistributing some money.
The McCain campaign talks about Palin's executive experience.
So Obama might have socialistic inclinations... Palin's gotten it done.
