The Budget

Plenty of people will have plenty to say about it, but Jack Balkin has the short and sweet version. Let me just add that it will also force the Democrats to defend the measly few million dollars in program cuts which will lead to more at risk and dead kids, making them look like the "big spenders." I'm sure the ontheonehandist media will give equal footing to "4 million dollars for blood transfusions for hemophiliac children"* and "50 billion dollars for Our Great Iraq Adventure."

*not, as far as I know, part of the Bush budget cuts.
