JP Sotille: We need a national campaign to re-name “Social Security.” It is time to re-brand it as “The Freedom Fund.” Re-branding—it’s as American as freedom itself! And it works.
Tina Dupuy: For the last two and a half years politics has been trash television. We’ve had right-wing stars staying relevant through mudslinging and shamelessness. The tea party wouldn’t be satisfied with just one Snooki. We’ve had fake stings by phony pimps and ideology-driven hoaxes. Astroturf is being sold as organic outrage.
