Exposing the current brickbat invocation of the Right's "favorite rhetorical ogre".

The New York Times did a piece entitled "'Socialism!' Boo, Hiss, Repeat" discussing the Right's obsession with mislabeling others' political positions.

Is it really analogue to the Liberal use of "facist"? Well, the mere fact that Conservatives admit them as antipodal—with "socialist" more deserving of scorn—is particularly illuminating.
