Topic: WorldNetDaily

Mychal Massie invokes his favorite five-dollar word once again in his March 31 WorldNetDaily column:

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is the Erebusic personification of President Obama's contempt for free-market capitalism. Together they have successfully maligned Wall Street and AIG, et al., vis-à-vis rule 13 of Marxist Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals," i.e., "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it."

In brief, pick someone or something you don't like and demagogue the daylights out of it until others enjoin the pile-on.

Of course, by using fancy smear words like "Erebusic," Massie is making use the very same Alinsky tactic he purports to despise against Obama and Geithner.
