Cheap Bastards

The Washington Post is reporting that the Bush administration is refusing to reimburse the District of Columbia for costs of the Bush inauguration, forcing the district to divert $11.9 million from homeland security projects. This is money originally set aside because the area is among the places at highest risk of a terrorist attack.

What this means is that rather than spending the money on better equipping firefighters, police officers and hospitals in the event of another 9/11, Bush would rather spend it on a bigger pat on the back. How can anyone feel safer with this Bozo?

Dead on it! I heard the National Park Service is going to allow protesters on coronation/let them eat cake day. I had a good feeling about them. That's why I joined the NPCA.
