As expected, the Democrat's attempt to override President Bush's veto of their "defeat with a side of pork" bill failed today by a vote of 222-203-1. We'll see what happens next, but all indications are that the Democrats are going to continue pushing for the $20 billion in unrelated pork and special handouts that has been used so infamously to buy votes and usurp the normal budgetary process.
 
A bill to fund the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq should be just that and nothing else.
