    One other interesting nugget, though. "Moocher" is a an Ayn Rand work. She used it a lot in "Atlas Shrugged" (or so I've been told--you would need to pay me a lot of money make me read it myself).

    This is part of what makes this so powerful with the Randian rightwingers. They consider it their word, and using it this way will definitely get under their skin.
