Somebody's Been Reading Way Too Much Ayn Rand


Mike Huckabee Really Is a Piece of Work [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

From Michigan:
"For those of us for whom summer is not a verb, for those of us who didn't go to fancy boarding schools on the east coast, for those of us who didn't grow up with a silver spoon, who were lucky to have a spoon — ask those folks and they'll tell you the economy is not doing well for them," says Huckabee.
Governor, I didn't have silver spoons or boarding schools or a verb summer, but I know enough to thank God for the job creators, the natural economic stimulators, capitalism. Is this the Republican primary of a John Edwards rally?
K-Lo lives in her own special little Randian fantasy world, where the capitalists are the only ones who create wealth, the only ones who do any work at all, and 'workers' are just parasitic drones trying to get a free ride.

Unfortunately, the GOP lives there with her.
