Alpo Accounts: Rep. Bill Thomas? We remember Rep. Bill Thomas! 

Apparently, Rep. Bill Thomas is now the Republican pointman on Bush's Social Security phaseout:

With President Bush's top domestic priority fading fast, Republicans once again have turned to one of their least liked but most effective colleagues: Rep. Bill Thomas, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

The California Republican saved President Bush's tax cut in 2003, has never lost a vote on the floor and, despite resistance among other House GOP leaders, is poised once again to try to revive the president's proposal to add personal investment accounts to Social Security.

Yes, we remember Bill Thomas. He's the guy who tried to have the Capitol Police arrest Democrats on the House floor.

Thomas was a fruitcake then, and he's a fruitcake now.

Hey, good luck to him! I mean, so long as he doesn't try to have Democrats arrested on the House floor again. Too, too '30s Berlin, know what I mean?
