We all know Bush is just trying to run out the clock so he can hand off the Iraq War to the next President and then blame them for the mess. The Democrats won't cut funding because they're afraid they'll be blamed for the aftermath, and because Bush might just leave the troops there to get shot to pieces. And my advice is unchanged as well: since the Democrats in the Congress are unwilling to attack the Iraq War directly, they should do so indirectly but zeroing out funding of the White House. Let Bush get through the winter without heat and see how he likes it.
P.S. I have been so busy with work and my dissertation that I haven't yet been able to help the local City Council candidate campaign. I feel guilty. :(
I like the idea, but what would be the point? He'd just go spend winter at his ranch in Texas, or hide in a bunker with Cheney....By Mad Hatter, at 8:59 AM
Heh. I didn't mean the "White House" in a limited way. I meant the whole executive branch of government. :)By Arbitrista, at 1:29 PM
While you're at it, could you extend it to certain portions of the judicial branch as well?By Mad Hatter, at 9:44 AM
Here's another idea: we could just buy Bush lots and lots of pretzels! :-)
The pretzels could be construed as manslaughter, but don't think I haven't considered cutting Scalia's allowance too!By Arbitrista, at 3:39 PM
