An AP story relates:

The Bush administration has told officials who oversee federal education, domestic security, veterans and other programs to prepare preliminary 2006 budgets that would cut spending after the presidential election, according to White House documents.

I'm thinking: How ELSE would taxpayers be able to line the pockets of Bush, Cheney and the bin Laden family's cronies at Halliburton, Bechtel and the Carlyle Group if not for drastic cuts in domestic spending (i.e., the birthplace of democracy).

But this classic post, by a user known as itsallgoofy on Yahoo! Message Boards, encapsulated the situation succinctly.

And this is a guy the GOP claims has convictions.

Oh, he does.

For drunk-driving.
