Shocking Evidence of Hidden Agendas!Jim Hoft, who couldn't pass a Turing test with 6 months of Kaplan and a 50 point bonus, is reporting breathlessly that the Obama campaign kickoff is Karl Marx's birthday.
This is important, groundbreaking journalism here, and it should be pursued wherever it leads. So when we learn that the Republican National Convention begins on August 27 this year, it raises the all-important question: why did they choose that date? What exactly is it they're celebrating?
Is it the birth of the guy who laid the groundwork for Marx? A military victory for America's enemies? The horrible deaths of 36,000 people in a natural disaster? The Visigoths finishing the job of doing to Rome what the GOP want to do to America?
Or is it all of the above?
Is it irresponsible to speculate? It would be irresponsible not to.
Update: As commenter BH notes, it also happens to be Lyndon Baines Johnson Day, so obviously they're celebrating the Great Society. Doesn't that just warm ol' Karl Marx's heart?
