The Death of the F-22

WaPo has a great article about the Obama administration's lobbying effort to kill the ~$2bn in extra F-22 funding that the Senate tried to stick in the defense budget. (Hat tip: Abu Muqawama)

It's good to hear that Rahmbo and Joe Biden have not forgotten how to wrangle votes on the Hill. Hopefully the Obama team can bring some of that firepower to bear on Health Care and the Energy bill.

It makes it especially sweet that Saxby Chambliss was the Senator who had sponsored the addition of the funding to the budget. Any time Mr. Chambliss suffers a defeat is welcome news to me.
