Whoopi Goldberg: Communism is a Great Concept on Paper

Every once in a while it’s fun to see a clip from “The View” just to remind myself that, even though I may be of average intelligence, I can feel like the smartest guy in the world for a few fleeting minutes.

Elizabeth Hasselbeck is usually the only person on that panel with properly firing neurons, but that doesn’t mean the others can’t be as entertaining as blind squirrels in a nut shop. The other day the panel was discussing the demise of Kim Jong Il, and Whoopi Goldberg said that communism is not unlike Sister Act II — looks like a good idea on paper but is an absolute disaster when played out in the real world:

Anybody who can’t spot the fundamental flaw of communism even “on paper” will either end up oppressed under a communist regime or hosting The View in a country that so far has been smart enough not to implement what looks good to simps “on paper.”

I don’t get it… communism has ushered in many horrible human tragedies in history, and those events are now recorded “on paper.” After all this recorded history, communism doesn’t work “on paper” either… so why do vacuous dingbats keep insisting it does work “on paper”? Sheesh.

This is why the left is having so much trouble figuring out what’s happened with Obama. “On paper” he was going to be a great president — everybody was going to have a high paying job for little work, health care would be free, the rise of the oceans would slow and the world was entering a new age of peace and harmony. But in reality… they’ll never learn.
