A celebrity death match I'd like to watch

Naomi Klein vs. the always annoying Andrew Sullivan.

Here's a clip of the two of them going at it on Bill Maher's show.

Referring to the bailout, Klein said the “bomb has yet to detonate” and that the real crisis will strike when tax payers are overwhelmed when faced with the debt from the bailouts.

According to Klein, the bomb will detonate if Sen. John McCain becomes president and “rationalizes” that it is necessary to privatize government programs like social security and healthcare because neither the government nor Americans can afford them.

“The real disaster has yet to come; the real disaster is the debt that is going to explode on American tax payers,” Klein said.

Oh yeah, now I saw a clip with just Naomi Klein and Maher, and saw on the left who I thought looked like Sullivan, but all he did was smile and look goofy.

Didya see Klein in Friday's Guardian?

Yes, saw that article.

She's so good. Too bad MSM ignores her for the most part.

Actually, I sent that Klein article to my Vermont congressperson, Peter Welch, and told him to pay attention to what she is saying. (Fat chance: he's running for re-election this November as a Republican-Democrat!)
