CNN is spending the entire day talking about the stimulus
They're talking about how at least 1/4th of it was waste.

2. Fiscal responsibility -- mysteriously becomes Priority 1 when Dems are in power.
Equally mysteriously, becomes Priority +oo when the GOP is in charge.

3. Much of it was not truly directed at stimulus
There were some greedy and stupid parts to the bill

4. Technically, there's no such thing as wasteful stimulus.
If the supply of money increases, and people start spending again, the stimulus was successful. I know that we would all prefer that it went to pay for "worthy" causes, but that's not the point. We could use the entire stimulus to pay for gay porn -- just so long as that money finds its way into the marketplace.
