The Sorrows of the True Commie

You know who I really feel sorry for in all this insanity? The American Communist Party. Yes, they’re still around, still doing busi — well, they’re still around. And they’ve got their ideas and their platforms and their ideals, and they’re kinda out there on the fringe and nobody much bothers them.And then the Republicans flip out and call Obama a communist. How crushing must that be to real, actual communists? I mean, you’ve got this right-centrist dude on stage, and his ideas are alright but a little ehhhhh, and people thing that’s socialism? People think that’s communism? It probably makes one want to just lie down in a ditch and die.
