Supporting the Troops

The head of the U.S. federal government agency that doles out benefits to disabled veterans is under fire for saying Bible study is "more important than doing [my] job."

And that's not just empty rhetoric! Since he became the head of the agency, "the number of veterans waiting on their disability claims has increased dramatically, from 325,000 in 2002 to 600,000 today."

I'm usually not a fan of the sound-bite, but... "He's prostituting his position," argued Mikey Weinstein, the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. "We could have done just as poorly as he's done by sticking a German Shepard or a cactus in that job."

In related news, Bush says we're kicking ass in Baghdad, recalling the vim of President Roosevelt's stirring D-Day address to the nation, in which he related how US troops were "knocking the snot out of the Krauts".
