Spending Freeze?

About the only thing that stuck out in my mind after the debate last night was McCain's comment about a spending freeze on everything other than defense and entitlements. Really, John? So screw the bridges and levees and education and climate change and all that? I know that the Giggling Murderer has spent the government into oblivion, but how's that going to sell in places like Minnesota or Louisiana?

McCain's treats the economy as if it's a spoiled child's allowance.

Freezing all non-defense/entitlement spending will cost more than it will save since we'll have to recover from such reckless behavior.

And about those entitlements... his own campaigns definition of entitlement would include the $6.7billion in aid to Isreal included in the 2007 budget.

Fine. Make it a big fat zero.
