Moran always manages to stick a foot in his mouth shortly before elections, but it makes little difference, as he's running in the heavily blue Northern Virginia 8th District. In 2006, he proclaimed that, "When I become chairman [of a House appropriations subcommittee], I'm going to earmark the sh** out of it."

He won 66-31 percent.

This time around, he reveals to us his very frank feelings about redistribution of wealth, which he feels has been impeded by simplistic notions such as right to property. This is the kind of Democrat Obama the Redistributionist will have obliging him in Congress, if elected:

Bonus video of Moran freaking out on constituents who dare to ask Democrats to take at least a bit of responsibility for the housing crisis. He really doesn't like that. Both statements look to have happened at an education forum in Arlington around Oct. 31. What a class act this guy is.
