Some astonishingly candid thoughts over at Kos

Glenn posted a link to a Kos diarist who took exception to Howard Dean's ludicrous claim that "The president and his right-wing Supreme Court" are responsible for the appalling Kelo decision expanding the power of eminent domain.

Well, props to azizhp, whoever he is, for calling Dean down on this one, but to me the most amazing aspect of this thread was the tone of some of the comments that his post generated. Here's a jaw-dropper:

I'm 100% behind it. Why? Because it resonates, and I'm perfectly willing to go for a false statement that illustrates a truth.

The GOP is the party of Big Business. Big Business (business in general) is who benefitted from the Kelo case.

So, frankly, I say it's a great line of attack. Screw accuracy -- remind people that now big business can take their homes away to make a shopping mall, and that's A-okay by the GOP.

Dayum. I mean, it's no surprise that some of these people think that way, but to be willing to admit it? Publically, on the internet, for the whole world to see?
