She Chokes on the Little Ones

Madam Virginia Foxx ... what a fine example of getting your legislative priorities straight!

She approves of every billion spent in Iraq -- what are we up to now? $196 BILLION? -- but she gets all self-righteously tight-fisted about pittances going to improve Head Start for pre-schoolers. She was one of only 36 House members to vote against HR1090.

The Madam couldn't STAND the thought of S-CHIP extending health insurance to several thousand of her poorer constituents, and voted against federal money for improving water-supply infrastructure in her own district.

But she'll happily stuff untold billions down a foreign rat-hole to avoid admitting that her beloved El Presidente made a colossal mistake.
