Revolving Pious Veto

spending bill for combat troops defied veto threat
the worst kind of Congressional meddling
sets a nonbinding goal for withdrawing troops

strip the withdrawal-date language from the bill
a revolving door of governments and military coups
confessing she had committed immoral acts

“in name of God I will live like a pious person”
drag her through the streets like a dog
in no mood to back down from war spending fight
