QuickTake: The AARP's Tearin' Down the House

I happened to catch an American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) TV spot last night. Picture Social Security as a surburban ranch and personal accounts as a wrecking ball. Watch the wrecking ball destroy the house. Associate the destruction of Social Security with adoption of personal accounts and the commercial's done its job.

Outrageous exaggeration like this doesn't help shape a rational public debate on Social Security reform. But maybe that's the AARP's intent.
