You Say Personal, I Say Private

The Republicans want to eliminate social security but they don't want to say that of course. The Bushmen held their focus groups and they must have told them that "private account" was too scary. Now they are called "personal accounts."

None of that is surprising, but as usual the press are disgracing themselves by repeating conservative phraseology and not owning up to their blanket suck up to Bush. Salon has the story on the press capitulation. As of now you don't need to go to the GOP to get their talking points. Just read the paper and watch the evening news.
