Democratic Majority Leader thinks the government firing CEO’s is just great, but doesn’t know the definition of socialism

This is Harry Reid on the firing of GM’s CEO:

I wish people who were pro-socialism would just come out and say it – rather than pretending that their ideas aren’t what they are. Then, at least we could have an honest debate about the merits. For whatever reason though, the whole government-can-do-everything crowd doesn’t want to acknowledge that they hold socialist philosophies. Could that be because socialist philosophy is built on the ideas of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engles – and if the American people actually realized that, they would reject them?

This interchange wins:

Reid: “Well, I don’t know what the definition of a socialist ideal is but…”

Levin: “Look it up, idiot.”

Hendrickson: “Government control of companies”
