Like the gauze-wrapped creatures who just won’t stay dead in those late-night movies you’re too tired to turn off, the “public option” has returned to Washington.

An analysis by Investor’s Business Daily, which called it the “Zombie Option,” said the idea – rejected in debate over the health-care plan signed into law earlier this year – is being promoted yet again as a way to save the government money.
