Gleen Greenwald has written up yet another damning critique of Democrats’ dishonest attempts to claim public support for a public option while doing everything they can to kill it.

Recently, Paul Rosenberg published a piece called: ““Stimulus for Dummies” — A Public Service Instruction Guide.” at Open Left. It had previously appeared in Random Lengths News, where he is Senior Editor, I appreciate Paul’s attempt to try to explain the stimulus to some imaginary skeptic, though I’m not altogether taken with calling the skeptic “Dummy.” Nevertheless, on reading his piece, I thought it was a little bit off the mark and failed to clearly explain some very fundamental ideas related to Government spending and the stimulus that I think “Dummy,” as well as well as most progressives who may have found themselves agreeing with Paul’s piece, really need to know. So here goes my attempt to explain these fundamentals cast in terms of comments by a fictional “Stimulus for Smarties,” replying to Paul’s imaginary dialog between “Dummy” and ‘Stimulus for Dummies.” To cut down on the length of this I’ll quote Paul in part, and also summarize some of what “Stimulus for Dummies” has to say.

In which I point out the utter hypocrisy of a self-appointed, self-proclaimed progressive “leader.”
