The $400 Haircut vs. The $150,000 Wardrobe

Also noteworthy: On Wednesday, FNC mentioned either ACORN or Ayers 95 times. CNN and MSNBC combined mentioned them a total of 20 times. Meanwhile, FNC mentioned “middle class” just 12 times — 1/8 as many times as they pimped ACORN and Ayers, 1/3 as many times as MSNBC mentioned the phrase, and 1/2 as many times as CNN mentioned it.

Major hat tip to Media Matters for maintaining an awesome video archive from which I gathered the Edwards haircut clips.

McCAIN 2008 vs McCAIN 2000 on Wealthy Paying More Taxes

Audience member: “Why is it that someone like my father who goes to school for 13 years gets penalized in a huge tax bracket because he’s a doctor.”

McCain: “I think it’s to some degree because we feel obviously that wealthy people can afford more.”

Audience member: “Are we getting closer and closer to, like, socialism?”

McCain: “Here’s what I really believe: That when you reach a certain level of comfort, there’s nothing wrong with paying somewhat more.”

McCain calling Obama a “socialist”

McCain and Palin are increasingly suggesting Obama is a socialist.

CONCORD, North Carolina (CNN) – John McCain stepped up his rhetoric against Barack Obama on taxes in his weekly radio address, comparing his plan to ‘socialist’ programs that would “convert the IRS into a giant welfare agency, redistributing massive amounts of wealth.”

The remarks were part of a theme McCain has used since the final presidential debate that criticizes Obama’s philosophy, but his most recent comments were the first time he directly invoked the word ‘socialist.’

In the radio address that aired Saturday morning, McCain didn’t directly call Obama a socialist, but he let the now-famous Joe ‘the Plumber’ Wurzelbacher nearly do it for him.

“You see, [Obama] believes in redistributing wealth, not in policies that help us all make more of it. Joe in his plainspoken way, said this sounded a lot like socialism,” McCain said.

In an interview with ABC last week, Wurzelbacher said Obama’s proposal to raise taxes by 3 percent on those making $250,000 and over is a “very socialist view.”

Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin has used the word in speeches the last two days as well.
