Deforming Social Security: Talking Points Memo

Two excellent pieces here and here on the cabal's incoherent, disingenuous and just plain stupid Social Security scam. The first is from Michael Kinsley and is a simple logical refuation; the second from Josh Marshall addresses the politics of the situation.

This issue is an excellent opportunity for the Democrats to start working George Lakoff's theories and bust their butts in reframing the issues. I have a feeling there are just enough moderate Republicans who retain a whiff of common sense and decency to derail this thing if we can derail the "we are saving SS from disaster" meme Bush has been using without challenge.
