Vital Functions

Sarah Palin just told me that John McCain would impose a spending freeze on all but the most vital functions of government. She listed two of those "most vital" functions, and one of them was "worker retraining."

I have nothing against a little federal worker retraining funding, but I'm reasonably sure that if you put all of the functions of government which are more vital than federal worker retraining expenditures on the list of vital functions you've pretty much covered about 99.9% of that budget.
