We can't do it without you!
As we said last night, we're putting together a list of the top ten Social Security Switch-Hitters in Congress. That is to say, the most bamboozling of the Bamboozlers (see last night's post on methodology for more details).
We're looking for the ten members of Congress who've not only managed to get away without telling their constituents where they stand on the most important and contentious issue of the day (Social Security) but have managed to make an art of it in the process.
Rep. Heather Wilson (R) of New Mexico is guaranteed a slot for using crafty bamboozle language to fool local press into thinking she opposed the president's plan when in fact she <$Ad$>hasn't come out against it. We also received a very strong nomination for Rep. Jeb Bradley (R) of New Hampshire who managed a very similar feat.
So remember, mere evasiveness or lack of a definitive position won't be enough to get your representative or senator into the top ten. We need to hear about one position one day and another position the next, reps. retreating to undisclosed locations during congressional recesses, bravura bamboozle language. If your rep. wore a disguise to the local mall that would probably put them into the top three. In other words, it's got to be good.
