Congress’s plan to double the Pentagon’s request for new luxury liners, the better to junket around the world at taxpayers’ expense, has now come to the notice of (are you ready?) the United States Senate.

‘The whole thing kind of makes me sick to my stomach’, says Missouri’s Claire McCaskill. Good for her, though her outrage does come at a suspiciously appropriate time, now that others are taking notice of how Congress spends their money. Blue skies! – Dan Ford
