Jokers on the right, clowns on the left

Slate sent one of their reporters to ask Florida primary voters what I think is an interesting and revealing question – “What will happen if Obama wins again?” What’s interesting to me about it that the answers are almost a mirror-image of what I think you would have gotten if you’d ask Democratic primary voters “What will happen if Bush wins again?”

Fully half of the people asked mentioned the “slide into socialism” as their fear with Obama – in much the same way that I think 2004 Democrats would have thrown out the term “theocracy.” Capitalism is and will be alive and well for a long time to come in this country¬†– just like Bush didn’t start setting up priestly tribunals, Obama’s not going to be able to do away with capitalism any time soon.
