Use Your Political Capital

Starting a quagmire of a war? 246 billion and thousands of lives.

Polling fraud? A few bucks and a few fewer polling points.

Failure to adequately fund levees? One American city.

Tax cuts for your buddies? The budget surplus, 8 trillion dollars and counting.

Phony education program? Increased property taxes for the strapped middle class.

Illegal wiretaps ? Personal privacy and various constitutional amendments.

Signing statements indicating you won't obey laws? Checks and balances on power.

Saber-rattling in Iran? 3-dollar-a-gallon gasoline.

Blaming it all on Mexicans? Priceless.
