Stupid Road Signs
Driving up to Michigan a few weeks ago, on the interstate, I saw a bunch of signs saying 'This project funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act' (or something like that). I wondered how much those stupid, worthless things cost. Apparently, millions of dollars.
Barbara Boxer, perennial liberal shill, says that being against wasteful spending on the signs means you are against government transparency. Yeah, OK, Senator. She mentioned that $33 million was spent in fliers to voters saying that their taxes were lowered in 2003 because of George W. Bush. For the record, those expenditures were stupid, too. But pointing out Republican hypocrisy doesn't really make your case any better, does it?
