If it’s true that you can judge a person by his friends, then what are we to make of the fact that old Sam Webb, the chairman of America’s Communist Party, has endorsed Barack Obama for a second term as Premier…uh, President, of the United States?
“The election of Barack Obama was historic and gave space to struggle for a people’s agenda…we are also aware of the undeniable fact that no other party besides the Democratic Party stands a chance of beating the GOP next year.”
Not much new there. The Reds went for Obama and the Dems in 2008 as well. And why not? Their policies and objectives are identical. As the communists exulted in the pages of People’s Weekly World (formerly The Daily Worker):
Jubilation and celebration, yes, along with realization that the hard work is just beginning. All of this reminds us of the old joke:

A: The Daily Worker.
Alas, now that joke could turn out to have yet another punch line — Barack Obama.
