WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Cost overruns on
big-ticket Pentagon projects have left the U.S. military facing a budgetary
"train wreck" at a time of growing budget deficits, Sen. John McCain
You know, he's right. Though, you don't have to be a genius to know that the Pentagon is the world's biggest, silliest, most wasteful shopping bazaar on the planet. You don't have to be in the military, or have phoney baloney "national security experience" to know that we could easily defend this nation and its interests for hundreds of billions of dollars less than what we spend on our military.
But for the last thirty years, you've had to be a Republican to be able to say that.
It's weird, isn't it?
I know I'll never forget Vice President Dick Cheney criticizing John Kerry for voting for cuts in Defense spending that Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney recommended.
And speaking of John Kerry...
When he lost the 2004 election by the closest electoral college margin in history, I don't really remember him being on the Tee Vee or in the papers seven days a week giving his opinions on how the executive branch should be run.
Like John McCain.
I guess you need some kind of crazy 3D GOP glasses to read between the lines of our incredibly conservative Washington press corps and see the liberal bias.
