Obama Insists “Socialism” Label Hasn’t Stuck on “Daily Show”

Comedy Central

The Democrat makes a serious attempt to defend himself from attacks by the McCain camp that his tax agenda has socialist tendencies in a Comedy Central interview Wednesday.

But, admits he hasn’t won over everyone: “I think that there’s a certain segment of hardcore Sean Hannity fans that probably wouldn’t want to go have a beer with me. There’s no doubt about that.”

Also jokes that his satellite appearance on Comedy Central is his infomercial, laughs about the possibility of the Bradley Effect taking place in the voting booth.
