What's Really on Ben Bernanke's Mind?

Has anyone else noticed some thinly (at best) veiled allusions in this whole attempt to avoid a recession? I wouldn't be at all surprised to see news ledes getting give up the attempt at subtlety:
  • Today NASA scientists unveiled a giant vibrator in the shape of a tongue to stimulate the US economy.
  • While no ground has been made in determining the amount of money that will be provided to Americans, the Senate did pass a resolution to change the terms of the debate, officially changing the name of the legislation from "economic stimulus" to "economic anal-ticklage".

Reminds me of Barbara Erenreich's comment that the latest stimulus package was an example of "clitoral economics."
