Invalid McCain Talking Point No. 442

Note to Sen McCain on his attempts to label Sen. Obama a ‘socialist.’

The Illinois organizer for Communist Party USA, John Bachtell, calls attempts by the McCain campaign to label Obama a socialist as both offensive to socialists AND a desperate attempt to tap into fears of voters who haven't forgotten their Cold War rhetoric… in other words, McCain’s trying to fear-monger.

Said Bachtell; "Red baiting is really the last refuge of scoundrels. […] It has nothing to do with the issues that are confronting the American people right now. It's just a big diversion.”
Ya think?

So when socialists themselves say Obama isn’t a socialist… wouldn’t that be a signal to, perhaps, give up that talking point?

I would think so… but then again, I have my own brain and can use it as such.
