The Return Of The Lock Box

You have got to be fucking kidding me. I remember Al Gore being roundly mocked for his “lock box” mantra -- to the point where he parodied himself on Saturday Night Live. And now we have Sharon Angle bringing it back:
"The real Social Security solutions are to stop Harry Reid from raiding the Social Security trust fund," Angle said in the ad.

"I'd like to save Social Security by locking the lock box, putting the money back into the trust fund so the government can no longer raid our retirement," she says, echoing former Vice President Al Gore's "lock box" comments that earned him ridicule in 2000.

Let me guess: in 10 years you guys will be in favor of carbon offsets to battle the crisis that is global climate change, right?
