McCain's Plan B: Tax Cuts are Socialism!

Like Jonah, I find it kind of silly to even address McCain's bizarre "socialism" charge. But I haven't quite seen anyone make the following point yet so here goes: After months of just flat out lying about Obama's plan to cut taxes, its pretty clear now that McCain's plan B is to simply acknowledge (implicitly) that Obama is cutting taxes, but call it a dirty word. So I guess that even though tax cuts used to be the cure-all for everything for conservatives, now that our guy is beating the pants off their guy, all the old rhetoric goes out the window --that is until next election.
