Obama's Brave Leadership

The President has instructed his cabinet to cut no less than $100M, in the aggregate, from the budget, which (according to George Will) amounts to:

...about 13 minutes of federal spending, and 0.0029 percent -- about a quarter of one-hundredth of 1 percent -- of $3.5 trillion.

If the Agriculture Department sliced the entire $100 million, that would be equal to 0.1 percent of its fiscal 2008 budget.

Ha. Laughable. Whole depressing piece here.
