    Sequester is the only way to give the pentagon a haircut.  It may be 50 years before this chance comes again.  As Gov. Dean said, Congress can backfill programs after the sequester starts.

    I believe no one in D.C. wants the sequester; BUT, the GOP is too extreme to make a reasonable compromise.  So it will happen anyway.
