It's no May 1st, but a lot of stuff happened on October 1st to make the reddest of commies happy:
- in 1867, Karl Marx's Das Capital is published
- in 1949, Mao stood in Tian'anmen Square and willed the People's Republic of China into existence
- and in 1974, the trial of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, Mardian and Parkinson (Nixon aides charged with conspiring to hinder the Watergate investigation) began.
Undoubtedly Obama will do something today that will eventually be added to that list. Maybe he just started secret talks with Iran to sell out Israel or something.
