Offering an olive branch to a fool

Josh Marshal suggests that we help Rep. Allen Boyd, the only Democrat who has publicly signed onto a Bush style Social Security privatization plan, come back in off that increasingly shaky branch.

Now, some may be tempted to say, "fuck him". But I happen to think even one Democrat signed onto Bush's plan is a bad thing. If we can find a clever way for Boyd to pull back from his blunder than (1) it will embarrass the Republicans even more and (2) give us a big fat chit with respect to Boyd's future political plans.
