Sometimes you need a joke to get the absurdity of reality across. Here Obama addresses claims of his "socialism" (which, ironically, the official Socialist candidate for President takes offense to--he considers it a distortion of his views to call Obama socialist, how do you like that?) with humor: "Lately, he's called me a 'socialist' for wanting to roll back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans so we can finally give tax relief to the middle class. I don't know what's next. 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." Now, be honest--how many people here would be surprised if that attack was real? I mean, Obama did get attacked for events that occured when he was eight. He'd be about five in Kindergarten, so what's three more years, huh?

When I seen Obama say that today I about choked on my Diet Coke. I watched your link, it was pretty funny.
