An elegant philosophy

Props to MRC for this little gem. You couldn't find a better, more poetic statement of the collectivist philosophy than this one:

Rosie O'Donnell: "His name is Senator Tim Johnson. He's a Democrat, and sadly he, he was ill, and he's had brain surgery. They think he may have had a stroke."
Elisabeth Hasselbeck: "Yes."
Guest host Dari Alexander of Fox News: "And the thing that is quite interesting about this, I think, is that it started this whole political brouhaha because, as you know, the Democrats took over in November by a 51-49 majority, and now if he has to resign, it will make things 50-50, because the governor of that state, who is a Republican, is in, in, he's in charge of basically putting an interim person in there for, for Senate, andâ€""
Joy Behar: "Is there such a thing as a man-made stroke? In other words, did someone do this to him?"
Alexander: "Maybe they gave him polonium."
O'Donnell, laughing: "Oh no, no."
Elisabeth Hasselbeck: "Let me ask you something. Why is everything coming from the liberal perspective a conspiracy? This is a conspiracy."
Behar: "I know what this, that party is capable of."
Hasselbeck: "Help us."
Alexander: "So, in any case, it started this whole political brouhaha, and you know, I think the thing that's really sad about this is that it takes a political angle when this guy is really critically ill."
Behar: "Yeah, we're very sad that he's critically ill, but there are millions and millions of people who depend upon this Congress. People in the world and people in this country. So it's really, his illness is, is sad, but it's not as important in the overall scheme."
Alexander: "Well, that's definitely true, butâ€""
Hasselbeck: "I guess it depends on what scheme you're thinking of."
Behar: "Well, I'm thinking of, I'm thinking of human beings lives. That's what I'm thinking of."

Behar is just fabulous. Dismissing a life because you're thinking of lives, which is, you know, more. So right and righteous. She's just like Hitler.

A little over the top here, aren't way? Plus this dialogue has nothing to do with collectivism.

How much time do you spend watching The View for philosophical insights? Maybe you should click over to Oprah for a more centrist approach.
