Finally, a semblance of a spine emerges:

WASHINGTON - Senators from both parties are challenging a Bush administration plan to sell up to 300,000 acres of national forest land to help pay for rural schools in 41 states.

I like this one:

[Agriculture Undersecretary Mark Rey's] comments were met with bipartisan derision.

"To propose selling off public lands we will lose forever, in exchange for a program we can pay for by other more prudent means, is simply irresponsible," said Sen. Craig Thomas, R-Wyo.

The Bush administration's fiscal management of this country is on par with those of an addict: do whatever it takes to keep the junk flowing or the coins for the slots coming...and then when you realize your credit is about to go down the tubes, start squandering the very assets that can keep you out of hock, if you could just change your ways.

Time to vote the bastards out.
