One of my favorite bloggers, John Cole at, shreds Romney’s ridiculous accusation that Democrats are suggesting we model ourselves after Russia or China…that old “red scare” tactic.

According to wikipedia, the ratio of wealth of the top 10% to the bottom 10% and the top 20% and bottom 20% in the US and Russia negligible- (15.9 and 8.4% respectively for the US, and 12.7 and 7.6% for Russia). We are the third most unequal industrialized nation after… wait for it… Mexico and Russia.

The entire post is worth the read if only to see a perfect example of intellectual evisceration. I am not worthy, Mr. Cole.
