So Bush is asking for 87 billion for Iraq? I warned you a long time ago that oil revenues alone wouldn't make up for all of the costs.

So now we know that the oil revenues aren't enough. Our allies aren't up to the challenge. Our Plan A failed and now we switched to plan B. But I'm sure that Cheney won't give up $180,000 a year (or is it one million?) in deferred compensation he gets from Halliburton, to help remove the burden from the American taxpayers' shoulders.

But when asked what I personally would do for 87 billion... I'd get it changed to pennies, just to see the pile. That would make my day.
