Socialism for the rich

It’s funny to hear Sarah Palin, in Nevada this week, attack Barack Obama for wanting to “redistribute wealth,” as if the deregulated economy isn’t already doing that for a lot of us. She naturally drags out the S word—socialism. It’s painfully funny if you think about the mounds of dough the Bush Administration has served to corporations and wealthy patrons in the form of no-bid contracts and deregulation-driven profits, among other ugly deals. Then again, maybe it’s not socialism if rich people benefit.
