National Public Radio sent someone out to survey the scene at a few parties where people were gathering to listen to President Obama’s speech last night. The online comments are filled with the usual, including those who favor a greater role for government calling those who oppose it selfish, uncaring Randians who don’t look out for anyone else, etc.

I’ll grant that Randian rhetoric isn’t my cup of tea. But it’s a bit ironic that such thoughts are posted on the site of an organization whose very existence is based in part on listeners using the power of government to require non-listeners to subsidize their radio fix.
