John McCain and his surrogates have been trying to paint rival Barack Obama as a “socialist” because he wants to “redistribute the wealth,” an attack so outdated and outlandish that some are dismissing it as just plane silly. And Obama’s no exception.
So said the Senator in North Carolina today:
Because [McCain] knows that his economic theories don’t work, he’s spending these last few days calling me every name in the book. 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, uh, peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
McCain’s camp responded by implying Obama’s rubber and they are, in fact, glue.
