The Final Word on Ivins' Credibility

Molly Ivins is done. Or rather, she should be done.

Yes we're back to Molly Ivins' vacillating take on Social Security. Steve Gigl tracks a decade of Ivins' columns about Social Security and finds (gasp!) that her view of its stability changes with the political expediency of her Democrat masters. Steve's findings:
  • Social Security was just fine until 1999.
  • Starting in 1999, some "shoring up" and/or "changes" were required (but certainly not privatization).
  • By 2001 and through 2003, however, the problem had become "major."
  • But now suddenly she agrees with herself back in 1995.

Read the whole thing. It's beautiful.

And it's better than anything Power Line has done on the subject (and no, I will not link to them until they apologize).
