Yesterday on Fox News radio, senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano posed the question: is Barack Obama a Marxist?
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Middle Earth) quickly clarified: that's not a question. That's a good question…
NAPOLITANO: Hey Sen. Lieberman, you know Barack Obama, is he a Marxist as Bill Kristol says might be the case in today's New York Times? Is he an elitist like your colleague Hillary Clinton says he is?
LIEBERMAN: Well, you know, I must say that's a good question. I know him now for a little more than three years since he came into the Senate and he's obviously very smart and he's a good guy. I will tell ya that during this campaign, I've learned some things about him, about the kind of environment from which he came ideologically. And I wouldn't…I'd hesitate to say he's a Marxist, but he's got some positions that are far to the left of me and I think mainstream America.
Well, that answers that! Perhaps Lieberman's savvy analytical approach could shed some light on another rumor that's plagued this campaign: is Barack Obama a Muslim? That's a good question. I'd hesitate to say he's a Muslim, but he sure is more Muslimy than I am. So does this mean Barack Obama is, in fact, a Muslim Marxist? That's a fantastic, insightful, entirely plausible question.
Actually… huh. Can Muslims be Marxist? Is that even possible, ideologically speaking?
It sounds outlandish, so I guess I'll just go with yes.
