Palin:"Alaskans Share the Wealth Collectively as Socialists."

Palin then:

"And Alaska - we're set up, unlike other states in the union, where it's collectively Alaskans own the resources. So we share in the wealth when the development of these resources occurs." She brags about sending $1,200 to every man, woman & child in the state since, quote "Alaska is described as America's socialist state.."
Palin now:
Senator Obama said he wants to quote spread the wealth. What that means is he wants government to take your money and dole it out however a politician sees fit. Barack Obama calls it spreading the wealth.” Palin said, “But Joe the Plumber and Ed the Dairy Man, I believe that they think that it sounds more like socialism. Friends, now is no time to experiment with socialism."
Sharing the wealth is good when it happens in Alaska but calamitous if suggested a Democrat?

This Republican campaign simply can't get more pathetic or hypocritical. Spreading the wealth is okay when it is $700 billion bailouts of everyone's money towards Wall Street in the largest transfer of money from the poor to the rich in human history.

But asking that people who earn over $250,000 should pay the same as they did before the Bush tax cuts - a position which McCain originally supported before he decided to sell his soul to the Republican base - well, that's just socialism. An abomination everywhere in the US... except Alaska.
