Incompetent, except as a taxi service
Senate Majority Leader Harry Ried's may have a low opinion of our military leaders, at least when talking to liberal bloggers, but Speaker Pelosi seems to think the military has its uses - as a free taxi service for the adult children of members of Congress.
Pelosi is taking on the current Pentagon policy that the Treasury must be reimbursed at commercial rates for children who accompany members of Congress on official government trips because it does not reflect the "realities" of modern life.
