Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! (Paul Ryan’s Dead Plan Walking)

This is going to be good.  A Republican airhead is preparing to drive herself off a cliff:

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), one of the co-sponsors of Rep. Paul Ryan’s Social Security-slashing budget proposal, went on Fox today to advocate privatizing both Social Security and Medicare. . . .

When asked by [Stuart] Varney how Republicans could reform entitlements without cutting benefits or raising taxes, Blackburn called for “cutting back the bureaucracy that surrounds the program,” and said many town hallers have suggested just that.

“You don’t necessarily have to have benefit cuts,” she said.

Good luck with that one, Marsha.  Republican teabaggers might not be too bright, but they are old.  Wait till they hear that you want to throw them off the government gravy train just so you can balance the budget in seventy years.  They won’t be amused.

So start getting the popcorn ready, Democrats.  Let the Republican flip-flopping, tap dancing and backpedaling begin!
