Democrats? Really?

Ok, a bill for a timetable to get out of Iraq by 2008. Great. Oh, what's that hanging off of the end of the bill? Did somebody say inducements? No, not for the Iraqis to step up and take over for departing US troops. No, inducements for Democrats who apparently did NOT hear the voters last year to vote for the bill. So we've got millions for agriculture bills or shrimp industry or who knows what.

It's just a little too much like the earmarks of yesteryear for my tastes.

I agree, LP. In fact I posted a similar article a few days ago. nevertheless, I'm glad it passed. The GOP will block it in the Senate, or Bush will veto it. Then in 2008, the GOP will have to justify why they balked at a compromise that met them more than half way.
