Why Is The Pentagon Off The Table?

Good question! The Defense Department's budget should definitely be cut.

But he doesn't ask if it should be cut; he asks why no one's allowed to talk about it. Could it be because influential columnists write BS like this?

The middle part of the country - the great red zone that voted for Bush - is clearly ready for war. The decadent Left in its enclaves on the coasts is not dead - and may well mount what amounts to a fifth column.

There are lots of reasons for the bloated Defense budget, the biggest one being corruption. But the #1 reason we can't talk about it is because anyone who brings it up when it counts (that is, when America's getting ready for a war) gets labeled a traitor by establishment columnists like Sullivan.
