Politics, as usual

Romney pisses me off.
Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney took aim at Democratic rivals on Sunday, calling them all unprepared to lead the country and comparing economic plan of Hillary Clinton to that of Socialist Karl Marx.
What is a rational response to this? Well, it's simply pointing out how it is silly to demonize someone calling them a communist. This is, of course, 2007. Really now Mitt.

But the Clinton campaign's mature, measured response?
A Clinton spokeswoman shot back, challenging Romney's record.

"Given how often Romney flip-flops, tomorrow he will be touting his membership in the Communist Party," Kathleen Strand said.
Sound-byte answered with sound-byte. And the American political system gets another unfortunate kick in the groin.
