    I found this at the bottom of the list:

    "Statistics via National Republican Congressional Committee"

    Would've been nice if the RNC had put some of these into an actual campaign ad last year, you know, so that we could have won the election or something...

    Best ones are in bold:

    15. $250 sent to a woman in Maryland who died in 1967.
    14. $840 spent to disassemble and assemble three desks.
    13. The Lincoln Center in New York City was paid to host a “tango salon.”
    12. $10,000 spent replacing light fixtures at a fish hatchery.
    11. $425,000 spent in $250 increments to 1,700 prisons inmates for social security checks.
    10. $426,000 to rebuild a bridge that is used by a average of ten cars a day.
    9. $500,000 spent in subsidies for rain barrel installation.
    8. $600,000 sent to a school district in Kansas …that no longer exists.
    7. $1 million spent in New York on road signs advertising stimulus projects.
    6. $1 million used to build 250 bike lockers.
    5. $1.25 million to use electric fish to study animal sensory information.
    4. $1.75 million spent on energy-efficient garage doors.
    3. $2.2 million spent to install skylights for a liquor store in Montana.
    2. $2.8 million spent installing toilets in New Mexico’s national forests.
    1. $15 million spent to build an airport in Ouizinkie, Alaska …a town of 165 people.

    The parody potential of this is tremendous. "This sign brought to you by the Economic Recovery Act."

    Yeah.. and what about all that 'stimulus' going to green energy companies aka crony capitalism, just in time so that they could give themselves bonuses and then go bankrupt. The list actually goes on and on ...

    I'll have to perfect my google-fu, but I remember seeing a show on TV about #2.

    That $2.8 million apparently purchased 3 or 4 toilets...
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.
    In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.
