Kinsley's Parable

Michael Kinsley, speaking on Al Franken's show on Air America moments ago, told this parable about how Bush's private accounts will make any problems with Social Security worse. (This is neccesarily a paraphrase -- I wasn't transcribing when listening).
It's like if you're in the desert and thirsty. You'd like some water. Bush comes up and says "How would you like lemonade? It's way better than water." "Ok," you say.

Whereupon, Bush gives you a package of dry lemonade mix and says "There you go. Just add water!"
