What our guys do

Remember Barak Obama? He was very popular around the time of the Democratic convention, and he gave a sitrring speech about there being no "red" or "blue" America. Everybody talked about him as a rising star in the Democratic party.

Awhile back I blogged about a craven example of administration hypocrisy, making wounded soldiers pay for their own meals during their visits to Walter Reed Army Hospital. Barak has taken them on.

According to today's edition of Salon, "On Wednesday, the Senate passed an amendment introduced by Illinois Democrat Barack Obama that will pay for them. It got added to an $82 billion emergency spending bill full of war money that President Bush is about to sign. The amendment applies to all military hospitals, not just Walter Reed."

Score one for the good guys.
