Famed radical Noam Chomsky credits Sarah Palin on Obama

Chomsky is no admirer of Republicans, except in this instance.

Famed linguist and political theorist Noam Chomsky said in an interview “I don’t usually admire Sarah Palin, but when she was making fun of this ‘hopey changey stuff,’ she was right, there was nothing there.” His comment concerned the 2008 candidacy of Barack Obama, which Chomsky said was a "marketing thing."

Chomsky, well-known for years for his opposition to U.S. economic and foreign policy, said that the advertising industry lauded Obama's efforts as the best marketing campaign of that year. The advertising industry, Chomsky said, can now discard the lessons learned from Ronald Reagan's successful presidential campaigns and now emulate Obama.
