Well, there goes my chance for ironic detachment in relation to the Democratic primary

"Hillary Clinton on Friday accused President George W. Bush of spending billions of dollars to police Iraq's "civil war" while cutting crime fighting in dangerous US inner cities.

The Democratic hopeful vowed to cut the murder rate in big cities by half if she becomes president, promised 100,000 new police officers on the streets, and laid out steps to cut America's huge prison population.

"It is a sad day in America when the president can find hundreds of billions of dollars to police another country's civil war, but cuts funding for police officers right here at home.""

Shit. Hillary has gone from predictable corporate stooge to actual threat, which means like in so many other election years the option will be, if you choose to vote Democratic, to support the default candidate.

Yay! Support Barack, he's not so crazy as to fund 100,000 cops with money saved from the Iraq war.
