As I noted in a post to my blog earlier this week, today is officially “College Social Security Rally Day,” when College GOP’ers are supposed to stage demonstrations of their support for Bush’s plans for Social Security “reform” (the national office helpfully provided elaborate scripts and handouts for these “spontaneous “demonstrations).

By actually spelling out his plans last night, Bush may have thrown a bit of a damper on things. And his proposal to address the prospect of diminished benefits–by slashing benefits–gives new meaning to the cat food buffets that College GOP’ers have been urged to stage to dramatize the plight of future retirees. 

But take heart, kiddies–under the president’s privatization plan, a retiree will be able to pass on his unused cat food “to whomever he or she chooses.”
