    points out that Bill Bennett will be the anti-AARP spokesman.

    A suggested counter-ad:

    "Bill Bennett, well-known compulsive gambler, is an advocate of private accounts.  Looks like he hasn't overcome his gambling addiction."

    Bush denies presidential timber.

    •  This is absolutely superb idea (4.00)
      USA-Next may turn out to be quite a gift for AARP and the pro-Social Security side.

      "Could there be any more appropriate symbol for privatizing Social Security than Bill Bennett, compulsive gambler?"

        I am a joined AARP when I turned 50.  I almost dropped out after the perscription drug fiasco, but decided that dropping out was not the answer, I settled for a scathing letter.  This ad is a huge disconnect for me, a 59 year old Viet Nam era vet, recently retired from 40 years of government service, and with a number of gay friends and aquaintences.  Yeah I'm a lib, so I think this is just plain stupid, but I wonder how many CONSERVATIVE AARP members are going to offended by this ad.  More than a few, I suspect.
