Simulacra and Stimulation

By Brian Cook
Barbara Ehrenreich got off an excellent laugh line earlier this week, writing "With all the talk about how to stimulate it, you'd think that the economy is a giant clitoris."

Well, it got somewhat less funny today when, under the guise of the newly released stimulus package, we learned that the Democratic Congress is fucking us over. (Or, if you prefer, performing cunnilingus on the rich.)

Brian Cook was an editor at In These Times from 2003 to 2009. He now works on the editorial staff of Playboy magazine.
