More on the Mancow/Drudge outrage of the day--that Obama doesn't believe in the Constitution and/or thinks it says we have to redistribute wealth--from georgia10 at DailyKos and the Volokh Conspiracy. David Bernstein: "Is it okay for a politician to talk about the redistribution of wealth only so long as you don't actually use phrases such as 'redistribution' or 'spreading the wealth,' in which case he suddenly becomes 'socialist'? If so, then American political discourse, which I never thought to be especially elevated, is in even a worse state than I thought." The full interview, with Obama and U. of C. law prof Dennis Hutchinson, is here (.ram).
