Tonight I saw an unmedicated schizophrenic taping a Xeroxed manifesto to a lamppost in my neighborhood. The manifesto referred to Barack Obama as "Wall Street's Marxist presidential pawn." It read in part:

...But how could Obama, a controversial figure with a revolutionary Marxist background, communist connections, and socialist worldview, emerge as the favorite of Wall Street interests? The short answer is that he is the perfect front man.

As noted, the American people have been conditioned to believe that the Republican Party is the party of the rich. The Democrats are supposed to be representatives of the working man. Obama has to have figured that he can serve Wall Street and socialism at the same time.

The ploy has worked before. Meticulous researcher Antony Sutton's 1974 book,
Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, documented a link between certain banking interests and the Bolshevik cause. In Obama's case, it is the China connection that is most relevant. Goldman Sachs, his major Wall Street backer, has had an exclusive financial relationship with the Communist government of China which has benefited both China and Goldman Sachs -- but not the United States.....

No, wait -- that was no manifesto from a schizophrenic! That was the latest column by Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media! (The column is also up at GOPUSA.)

Sorry -- I thought these were the insane rantings of an institutionalizable mental patient, but they're just near-mainstream Republican punditry. My apologies for not being able to tell the difference.
