A Cautious Man

"I’ve been Ayn Randed, nearly branded a Communist ’cause I’m left handed ..."
The drumbeat from the McCain campaign and media enablers ("share the wealth" "redistribution" "SOCIALIST!!!") goes on. As provided by the Talking Points Memo website, Senator McCain's remarks yesterday continued and expanded his attack, taking in the whole Civil Rights movement in the process:
After months of campaign trail eloquence, we've finally learned what Senator Obama's economic goal is: to spread the wealth. In a radio interview revealed this week, he said the same thing -- that one of the quote, "tragedies" of the civil rights movement is that it didn't bring about "redistributive change."
ThinkProgress provides a compilation of some of his media sidekicks:
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Senator McCain still pushing his plan to use our tax dollars to buy up lousy mortgages - at full price - and then settle for less than their value. That may be a break to some homeowners, but it's also a huge break for the banks. I guess "redistribution" is only bad if it goes to other people.
Finally, also courtesy of TPM, Senator Obama responded today -
Obama: "By the end of the week, he'll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. ... I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich."
