It's MarX, Not MarK, Comrade!

By John W. Lillpop

In my recent column titled, "I am Voting Democrat," the very last item read "Karl Mark was smarter than George W. Bush."

It should have read, "Karl Marx, in whose name the Democrat Party seeks to destroy America and the entire free world, was smarter than George W. Bush."

That typo provided interesting commentary from both sides of the political aisle:

Conservatives defended the president and were offended by my attempt to satirize his alleged lack of brain power.

Why anyone would take my remark, or George W. Bush for that matter, seriously defies explanation.

He is without question, the worstest president in U.S. history.

Liberals, on the other hand, fumed at the misspelling of the revered name of Karl Marx.

Forget George W. Bush and the obvious spoof: Brain-dead liberals who worship at the altar of communism and anti-American anarchy demanded that the record be made right.

Accordingly, let it be known, far and wide, to every voter and potential voter:

It is Marx, not Mark, to whom liberalism owes its most regrettable existence

For the record, Karl Marx died in 1883!

All of which proves that those who scheme to ruin our way from the left side of the aisle are in love with a failed ideology from nearly a century and a quarter ago.

And they call themselves "Progressive"?
