George (Henny W. Penny) Bush is at it again -- this time the Social Security sky is falling. Do the words "Lying S.O.B." Ring a bell?

Krugman is right -- it's the same old WMD game:

"Hurry, hurry, hurry -- no time to waste, no time to stop and think about taking an action that will affect our lives for the next hundred years. Trust me. I may be a goddamned liar, but I'm honest about it."

And -- what is this? Mirable dictu! Those gutless nutless Democrats are actually trying to peek their scared little heads out from under the covers to speak up. Or maybe not.

After all, there's always the risk of losing a little power or privilege or income doing something as rash as taking a stand for a vaguely-remembered principle or two.

Once again: If the people who earn over $80,000 a year paid the exact same percentage of income as those who earn less, there would be no crisis, no excuse for Bush to shovel a trillion dollars of our money into the pockets of his scumbag friends who are hiding in the recesses of Wall Street.

But then all those examples of misused human protoplasm who hang around Monkey Boy and his pals wouldn't be able to pretend they're so high-born they don't need to be subject to the same laws as the rest of us.

Ahhh -- as they say in Texas:

"They lie and lie and lie and use you 'till Hell won't have it."
