Republicans on the Internet

Biff Spackle writes "North Korea represents the ideal for those who fight for income equality with its one man at the top worth tens of billions of dollars while the entire civilian population starves, largely impoverished."  

Apparently conservatives can write entire articles on "inequality" without bothering to spend a few seconds to look up "Gini Coefficient".  You don't even have to click through the link.  Google displays the Wikipedia text in a sidebar to the search results: "The Gini coefficient is a number between 0 and 1, where 0 corresponds with perfect equality . . . and 1 corresponds with perfect inequality (where one person has all the income--and everyone else has zero income)."

Oh my.  Exactly the same example, exactly the opposite meaning.
