It's Baaaaaack! 

The destruction of Social Security, the centerpiece of the Empty Flight Suit's special brand of "compassionate conservatism," has become the Michael Myers of politics - it can't be killed:
Last year, even though Bush talked endlessly about the supposed joys of private accounts, he never proposed a specific plan to Congress and never put privatization costs in the budget. But this year, with no fanfare whatsoever, Bush stuck a big Social Security privatization plan in the federal budget proposal, which he sent to Congress on Monday.

And oh, yeah, he wants to rob widows and orphans, while he's at it.
