How To Make A Republican Tell The Truth

This idea from the DU finally helps make sense of it all.
"I heard this from someone else over the weekend and it is brilliant:

It works just like the Salada Tea Bags lines, or that game people play with cookie fortunes, where you add the words 'between the sheets' to make a meaningless platitude much more interesting.

All you have to do in order to make Republican domestic policies make sense is take their talking point and add the words '...if you're rich!'

For instance: 'Privatizing social security makes a lot of sense...if you're rich!'

Or, 'Our health care system is the best in the world...if you're rich!'

Or how about, 'The economy under Bush is the strongest it's ever been...if you're rich!'

Just add three little words, and all of a sudden, these bastards are telling the truth.

It's most fun if you do it in a group with one person beginning the talking point and everyone else finishing it in unison. I think it could be productively adapted as a protest tactic for some of those Social Security meet-ups Santorum and friends are doing now, for instance.
