Gratuitous Goddam Communists Posting

Catallarchy has a round-up of May Day rememberance posts.

I kid you not that I once had a very bitter argument with a classmate in college over Dr. Seuss's Butter Battle Book.

This classmate maintained that Seuss's story was a perfectly legitimate allegory about the Cold War, since the differences between the United States and the Soviet Union were, in fact, no greater than those between the Zooks and the Yooks (i.e., which side of the bread to butter).

For my part, I argued that my classmate was full of sh*t.

Head, meet wall.

By the bye, this reminds me of one of my favorite political pronouncements by Peej O'Rourke:

Communists worship the devil.
Socialists believe perdition is a good system run by bad people.
Liberals think we should all go to hell because it's warm there in the winter.

UPDATE: Kim Priestap over at Wizbang notes the link between today's illegal immigrant protesting and the Reds. I'm pretty sure most of the people at these rallies aren't humming the "Internationale" under their breath, but that evidently isn't stopping the Commies from using them for propoganda fodder.
