Romney Compares Hillary to Karl Marx, But Only Around the Eyes

Mitt Romney thinks that Hillary Clinton needs a lesson in economics:

Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney took aim at Democratic rivals on Sunday, calling them all unprepared to lead the country and comparing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s economic plan to that of Socialist Karl Marx.

“It would be helpful to have a person leading the country who understands how the economy works and has actually managed something.”

Nah, Hillary understands this and knows exactly what she’s doing — it’s some voters who need a lesson in economics. An economically educated electorate would mean the Hillarys of the world would sell about as well with the general population as O.J.’s alibi, which is why Hillary is a big backer of government schools run by people with a vested interest in seeing to it kids know nothing about economics via classes taught by people who know nothing about economics.

But I do disagree with Mitt that Hillary’s economic plan reeks of Karl Marx — actually it reeks of Groucho Marx. It’s comical, it walks funny, it’s disguised, and you know there’s a joke just around the corner.

But there is some resemblance to Karl, especially around the eyes. Appropriately enough, it’s poorly masked.
