Deep thoughts at WaPo

"Liberals love to gripe about military spending," The Weekly Standard notes.
Just last week, Washington Post managing editor Raju Narisetti actually wrote on his Twitter account: "Thought encounter of the day: 'Would be good if our schools are fully funded and DoD has to hold a bake sale to buy its next fighter jet.'" It would also be good if, à la Red Dawn, a ragtag band of plucky high school kids could drive an invading army out of Colorado—Wolverines!—but we'd best keep a few aircraft carriers around just in case. Considering that America's worst school districts tend to be some of the best funded, Narisetti might consider this sentiment not so much a "thought" as an encounter with a bumper sticker likely to be found on a ’76 Volvo wagon.
