Could I get some bacon with that Iraq?

by

Apparently Steve Kagen has had a sudden change of heart about the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. But who can blame him? What matters more to a brat-loving Sconnie than pork for pork:

The northeast Wisconsin Democrat voted Tuesday for a $106 billion emergency spending measure that includes $80 billion to sustain military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan through this budget year ending Sept. 30.

Kagen rejected a House version a month earlier because he said it lacked a plan for bringing U.S. troops home. Tuesday’s measure, a compromise between earlier House and Senate versions, also contained no troop withdrawal provision.

But the final measure did include $7.7 billion to fight the swine flu pandemic. Kagen said that, along with a couple of additional items, was enough to gain his support.

When the house offers you free bacon with your omelette, you can disregard the burnt eggs.
