Karl Marx’s birthday raises Obamaphobia to a new level
Today is the 194th anniversary of the birth of communist philosopher Karl Marx.
Today also brings the official kickoff of President Obama’s re-election campaign.
This nuttiness about Marx’s birthday dovetails perfectly with the wingnut theory that Obama’s campaign slogan reveals a commie bent (see HERE).
(Never mind that MUCH THE SAME SLOGAN was used by a Republican president for his inauguration 43 years ago.)
A few unsettling questions arise from all this stuff: If the right-wing loonies are this hysterical in the first week of May, how much worse will they get by November? And what will they do if it becomes apparent even to them that Obama will win re-election?
