Crony Socialism is the appropriate term, as Capitalism has honest (and scary) competition as an absolute ingredient, by its very nature. Remove competition, by corruption and collusion, and you no longer have Capitalism. Thank you for your determination to avoid this 'Newspeak' (Crony Capitalism) from the Left.

Breaking news: The Fishwrap of Record has finally discovered that the Obama administration gives its Chicago corporate pals special access to power and regulatory favoritism. On Thursday, The Not-So-New York Times published an A1 story titled "Ties to Obama Aided in Access for Big Utility."

Everyone, put on your shocked faces!

"With energy an increasingly pivotal issue for the Obama White House," the Times intoned, "a review of Exelon's relationship with the administration shows how familiarity has helped foster access at the upper reaches of government and how, in some cases, the outcome has been favorable for Exelon."
