Dueling Assholes

The Berkeley City Council versus Senator Jim DeMint. Maybe if they distract each other sufficiently, they won't do anything else that requires my attention.

DeMint wants to cut "$87,000 for the Berkeley Unified School District nutrition education fund and $243,000 for the Chez Panisse Foundation, which promotes nutritional awareness in school lunch programs" and send it to the Marines. So that's over $300,000 of literally taking food from the mouths of children and putting it into defense spending.

Why does this sound like Berkeley just allowed DeMint to do something he'd always dreamed of but never thought would be politically feasible?
