The peculiar absurdity in Frank McElligott's denunciation of Obama is 
that the current inconceivably vast transfer of tax-gouged money to 
massively fucked up corporations in order that they can continue to 
fuck things up is the very contrary of "liberal" in any sense of that 
word: technically, it looks to me like corporate fascism on the 
Mussolini model.
