On my way into work this morning, I heard an official from a fireman's union being interviewed on the local news radio station. He was going on and on decrying the Bush administration, saying that Bush has "failed to fund" local fire departments for new equipment.

The interviewer (whom I normally like; he never displays any overt bias) never thought to ask him the two questions I thought were rather pertinent: "What makes this a federal issue? Aren't budgets for fire departments set by local officials?"
