McCain's brilliant plan to pay down the deficit

This should work:
“The McCain administration would reserve all savings from victory in the Iraq and Afghanistan operations in the fight against Islamic extremists for reducing the deficit. Since all their costs were financed with deficit spending, all their savings must go to deficit reduction.”

So, we're borrowing money now to pay for the wars but when the wars are over we're going to borrow money that we would have borrowed to pay for the war to use that to pay off the money we borrowed before.

1. Win wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
2. ?????
3. Profit

This reminds me of Xander Cruise's (see: "Frisky Dingo") business plan on the overhead projector. The one with "tax shelting" and whatnot. God, I wish I could find a picture of that.

"...then we pump THOSE profits back into the profit cycle to make even MORE profits."
