declaring himself to be not only a socialist, but a hardcore socialist. And also an arrogant socialist:
I am not a progressive. I am not a liberal who is so afraid of the word that I had to change my name to progressive. Liberals amuse me. I am a socialist. I live to the extreme left, the extreme left of you mere liberals, okay?
Well that puts the hey down where the horse can get it, huh? Just what we need!
