Embarrassingly Easy

Yeah, I know, making fun of Freepers is like shooting fish on the sidewalk, but I'm afraid I may suffer an aneurysm if I do nothing about this response to the news that Warren Buffet has signed on to be Arnold's economic advisor in his attempt to become California's top dog:

"Buffett is a frickin' socialist."

Go ahead. Read it again.

No, you aren't hallucinating.

The man who has arguably benefited more than anyone else in history from the free market is a socialist.

Seriously, though, I wonder how liquored up I would have to be to say something as mindbogglingly stupid as that. I think my liver would just leap out of my abdomen and run away first.
