But I find it disgusting that McCain could stand up there and sanctimoniously admonish anyone else for sanctioning the redistribution of wealth. Seriously. Because it's so freaking obvious that someone in the Republican Party has recently determined that The American People think "Redistribution of Wealth" is bad and so of course McCain must accuse Obama of doing this.
It's as if they don't even know the meaning of the words. It's just a sound bite to woo voters away from the opponent. In fact, that's exactly what's going on. Americans respond to sound bites these days, not principles.
Anyway, on the AJC.com tonight, I got a pleasant surprise. There's a little blurb on the main page--you can see it even if not registered, but it's the kind of headline changed often:
Spreading wealth not new
It's basis of U.S. tax code.
Yes, yes indeedy. Can you believe somebody wrote that? I bet it gets zapped soon. I ought to take a snapshot of it!
