The Iraq war has so far cost nearly $500 billion (again, billion with a "B"). Meanwhile, the presidential commission appointed to look into ways to improve veterans care released a report recommending, among other things, improvements that would initially cost $500 million (again, million with an "M").

Despite this cost for needed changes being 1/10 of 1% of the cost of the war, "Tony Snow initially told reporters yesterday morning that Bush would not take immediate action. But late yesterday afternoon, after Dole and Shalala's comments and criticism from a veteran's group, Bush announced he would move quickly."

Sounds about right. What a worm -- oh, and remember, Bush loves the troops!
