Far be it from me to agree with the National Review or Fred Thompson, but if this is accurate, and there is a ridiculous amount of pork in the emergency war funding bill, its a very bad thing. Why should we a guy like me who has come to distrust Republicans support Democrats if they’re just going to go Washington and behave like Republicans?
In a kind of unrelated note – why is there an emergency war funding bill? Four years into the war, funding it using it supplementals is an abuse of the system by the administration. What right does the administration to leave funding for the war out of the budget?
