Right vote, wrong reason

Rep. F. Jim Sensenbrenner was one of 19 Republicans who voted "no" on an appropriations bill that poured another $66-billion into the bottomless pits of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Sensenbrenner voted against the bill not because he has any problems with the blank check for war, but because it also included money for Hurricane Katrina aid. At least he is consistent in his cold-blooded heartlessness toward Katrina victims, which is well-documented.

Sensenbrenner thinks there's too much waste in New Orleans, but apparently that's not an issue in Iraq.

Capital Times editorial.
