George Soros Owns $62 Million Worth Of...Sit Down Before You Read On...Haliburton!

George Soros, scourge of the fascist right, well-heeled hero of the American Progressive movement, is apparently very capable of separating his political views and activities from what he does to keep his extensive fortune growing.

In his latest financial move, Soros has purchased 2 million shares of Halliburton, valued at over $62 million. Among the self-described progressives, especially those in the netroots, there is no more criminal capital enterprise on the earth than Halliburton, whose former CEO, VP Chenney, is arguably the most hated person in the power elite.

Andrew Sullivan speculates that the netroots will explode. I'm betting that they are such practical political animals that they will see the value in forgiving Mr. Soros his fiscal sin.
