Wow. One little attempt at humble, self-deprecating humor, and I am the poster child for all that's wrong with Democratic politics. I assure TPM readers -- those who very nicely suggested some books to read and those who not so nicely see me as an ignoramus -- that I do know quite a bit about Social Security. Compared to Josh and Matt, I am a novice. That's why it won't be my focus this week.
Now, I'm really off to the gym, and later tonight, I'll continue with the British election primer.
