More like they'll be the Wile E. Coyote painting a tunnel on the side of a mountain in a vain attempt to foil the Roadrunner. Good luck with that, guys. This plan has "successmanship" written all over it, not unlike Bush's lame privatization scheme.
Uh-huh, and I'm sure there are no in-house lawyers advising these guys either, right? Just like last time. Jeez, you can just about set your watch by these people.
Yeah, I guess it would be an honor for a shill to be equated with a pack of hyenas. It either doesn't occur or doesn't matter to them that there are plenty of legitimate concerns even with honest privatization plans, much less this dog-and-pony show.
No matter. They can publicly disassociate themselves from the White House all they want, but all these tactics will do is breed resentment against the Republicans. Art Linkletter aside, the elders are not going to take to kindly to getting strong-armed by these guys, and they're the one demographic that can actually do something about it. One commercial showing a purse snatcher mugging a little old lady and these clowns are done for, Art Linkletter or no Art Linkletter. And as Bush has made SS dismantlement the first cornerstone of his second term, a resounding defeat could be the first thread in a wonderful unraveling of their whole rotten tapestry. (Mmmm, mixed metaphors.)
So in the finest spirit of briar patch politics, oh no, whatever you do, please don't put out hit ads on the AARP!
