Biden treats idiotic comment from wingnut anchor like it should be treated - with contempt:
"You may recognize this famous quote," WFTV Anchor Barbara West told Biden on Thursday. "From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs, that's from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?"
Biden laughed himself out of the unusually tough interview asking in response, "are you joking? Is this a joke?"
"No," responds West.
"Is that a real question?" Biden continues.
"That's a question." West said.
Ooooh, that proves it! Obama said something kind of sort of like something Marx once said! OBAMA HOOOOOOSEEEIIN MARXIST!!11
Of course, I'm probably sure Marx once said "I think I'll go have some lunch now" as well, so forgive my Communist leanings if I find myself saying that as well.
BTW, Marx made that comment in his Critique of the Gotha Programme in which he also makes the following remark:
Freedom consists in converting the state from an organ superimposed upon society into one completely subordinate to it; and today, too, the forms of state are more free or less free to the extent that they restrict the "freedom of the state".
In other words, freedom is irreconcilable with subordination to the state, which kind of sounds like something I could see McCain agreeing with.
There we go - both of them are Communists!
As Ms. West stomps off to cry on O'Reilly's shoulder, can we adults get back to reality now?
BONUS SNARK: Did you catch the HTML link for the CNN story?
Hey, CNN - you might like to look up this thing we like to call "journalistic principles". Might come in handy some day.
