The "New Majority" Revealed: It's David Frum! | Main | Dem Spin Begins: Why, Obama Hasn't Even Been In Virginia For Weeks (Except for Five Days Ago)

Money Well Spent

"What do you think a stimulus is? Its spending that's the whole point! Seriously.

Here's what Obama thinks a stimulus is:

- $3.4 million for a 13-foot tunnel for turtles and other wildlife attempting to cross U.S. 27 in Lake Jackson, Fla.

- $1.15 million to install a guardrail for a persistently dry lake bed in Guymon, Okla.

- $9.38 million to renovate a century-old train depot in Lancaster County, Pa., that has not been used for three decades.

- $2.5 million in stimulus checks sent to the deceased.

- $6 million for a snow-making facility in Duluth, Minn.

- $173,834 to weatherize eight pickup trucks in Madison County, Ill.

- $20,000 for a fish sperm freezer at the Gavins Point National Fish Hatchery in South Dakota.

- $380,000 to spay and neuter pets in Wichita, Kan.

There's much more at the link, including an appearance by John Murtha.

The administration pointed to the recently released GDP number for proof that the stimulus worked, but it's a tough sell since even MSNBC is questioning its validity as a yardstick for economic recovery.

Still, we can't say we weren't warned.
