Globe Columnist Admits Dem Majority Could Bring 'Roaring' Redistribution of Wealth

Thanks, Bob Kuttner. You might doubt my sincerity. But really, I mean it. With Nancy AWOL, and Charley Rangel coyly claiming at his age he doesn't buy green bananas let alone speculate what he would do as Way & Means Chairman, perhaps Americans have lost sight of what the Dems have up their sleeve if they get back the majority. So in all sincerity, thanks for telling it like it is.

In Nervous excitement builds for Democrats, Kuttner lets the Dem cat out of the bag:

"We are about to get something all too rare in Democratic politics lately -- some progressive leadership . . . With a little gumption on the Democratic side, the lopsided distribution of wealth, security, and opportunity in America could come roaring back."

Hear that, folks? With Nancy, Charley, Barney & friends at the helm, we could be embarking on a period of the radical redistribution of wealth by government fiat.

Psst: Bob, that voicemail is from Nancy: "Kuttner, couldn't you keep your mouth shut for three more days?!"

Aside: Kuttner frets over "how many votes [Republicans] will hide, deter, or steal." If you're a Republican reading this, wouldn't you love an election in which every vote counted and there was zero election fraud? Me too.
