IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCK AND TALKS LIKE A DUCK, AND QUACKS LIKE A DUCK, IT'S ACTUALLY THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE OF A DUCK!
John McCain on Larry King Live last night:
L. KING: Concerning spreading the wealth, isn't the graduated income tax spreading the wealth?
MCCAIN: The graduated income tax...
L. KING: If you and I paid more so that Jimmy can get some for him or pay for a welfare recipient, that's spreading the wealth.
MCCAIN: Well, that's spreading the wealth in the respect that we do have a graduated income tax. That's a far cry from taking from one group of Americans and giving to another. I mean, that's dramatically different.
Um ... yeah, right. Got it. Dramatically different. Not the same at all.
There you are, folks -- Larry King is making more sense on economics than the Republican candidate for president of the United States.
