Kerry better b/c he won't cut drug task forces: Iowa AG

The Iowa Attorney General endorsed Kerry on the grounds that Bush wants to cut Byrne grant funding for drug task forces and Kerry doesn't.

It's amazing that Bush is so bad on everything else that his drug task force position doesn't matter to me, even as we see endless strings of crappy oucomes like the case in Palestine. Ending the Byrne grant program may be the only major item on which I agree with the incumbent president.

Ugh. Sadly, Kerry's task force stance lets us know that even if he turns out to be better on Iraq (and that's far from assured), on the drug war, to quote quite a different Byrne, we get the "same as it ever was," no matter who prevails on November 2nd.
