Not a time to experiment?

Now is not the time to experiment with socialism
Sarah Palin, Oct. 23

First reaction: If not now, when?

Second reaction: Can we stop allowing our right-wing politicians to brand timid, not-even-quite social-democratic proposals as if they were for worker ownership of the means of production? (Apparently the WSJ thinks the actual policies could go much farther than the timid campaign themes–possibly even including (hold on to your hats here) single-payer health insurance, windfall profits taxes on oil companies, and a return to Clinton’s aborted BTU tax. Regarding that, see first reaction.)
