‘Puter has several liberal friends who have spent the last couple of weeks berating ‘Puter for the House Republicans’ proposed cuts to, among other things, Planned Parenthood and LIHEAP. ‘Puter’s friends are outraged — outraged! — that ‘Puter could be for such cuts. So ‘Puter coyly cocks his head and asks them what specific programs totaling $60 billion they propose cutting, in lieu of their favorites.
After sputtering about defense and Iraq and it’s all BUSHITLERCHENEYBURTON’S FAWLT!1!!!1 President Obama is in this mess, because he’s really swell if you’d just give him a chance, they have no answer.

In the immortal words of John Fogerty, “and when you ask them how much should we give, they only answer more, more more!” Just so long as it’s yours, and not theirs, they’re giving away.
