Democratic Candidates Assail Bush Across a Wide Spectrum

"Senator John Edwards today denounced President Bush's tax-cut program as the 'most radical and dangerous economic theory to hit our shores since Socialism."


So John Edwards won't be getting my vote (not that there was ever much question).

-- Bush's plan didn't wash up on the beach, dickhead.
-- Socialism did, sorta, but it was at least as early as the 1840s and Fabianism.
-- Equating tax cuts for the rich with socialism?
-- The article goes on to say that Lil Johnny's speech "bristled with the populist language that has come to characterize his campaign for president." Is that the populist language made popular by "Pitchfork Ben" Tillman? Or is it the populism of Barry Goldwater? Perhaps the populism of William Jennings "the-Boy-Orator-of-the-Platte-Voice-like-a-mountain-lion-Bryan!-Bryan!-Bryan!" Bryan?
-- Edwards "proposed exemptions on some capital gains and dividends taxes paid by lower-and middle-income families." Ooooooh! Feel that? That's pure bristle. Lower income families pay capital gains and dividends taxes? The fuck?
