Hugh Hewitt's despondent dispatch from planet Bizarro:
My biggest worry is four more years of starving our military, and here the House must simply say no, even if it forces the showdown that the GOP strove so hard to avoid for fear that it would wreck their political chances.
That came after Hewitt's description of the "good and generous" and "virtuous" Mitt Romney's "disciplined and idealistic campaign" which was defeated only because "Nature intervened."
As to the U.S. military, what Hewitt describes as President Obama's starvation of it resulted last year in a defense budget that outpaced by $16b the combined military budgets of China, Russia, UK, France, Japan, India, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Brazil, Italy, South Korea, Australia, and Canada.
Finally, that showdown? The one Hewitt recalls being fearfully avoided by a politically sensitive GOP? Somewhere, On Hewitt's planet, perhaps that took place. It didn't happen here. But Hewitt's drooling reference to such a catastrophic event suggests to me that the far right simply cannot wait for another shot at the Apocalypse.
