Every day I seem to hear more and more of the unhinged frothing wingnuts who pass for an opposition party here screaming about how "Obama is a socialist", or about "the socialist policies Obama keeps ramming down our throats."

I can't help but think:

If only.

I mean socialist? Really? And here I thought that a socialist would actually be supporting things like tearing down the corporate state-capitalist system, or at least pitching social-democratic compromise measures like single-payer healthcare. A socialist, I was sure, wouldn't be all about pitching even more money to the CEOs than the Bushies and hiring crowds of theocrats as "advisors" on matters of "faith" (and how to shovel public money to reactionary religious groups at home and abroad).

But what would I know about the policies of socialists? I'm just a socialist, after all -- certainly can't take my word for any of it.
