Nose, Face, I'd like you to meet my friend "Spite"

I'm a big fan of the Republican's hypocritcal approach to the stimulus package -- fight it like crazy, bitch about the spending (after 8 years of deficit expansion thank you very much), then applaud and fight for those bits of spending they didn't vote for but that will help their districts. Yep, that's the GOP bringing home the bacon for you.

Of course, you then get the Governors who are considering passing on the stimulus spending or picking and choosing like from an a la carte menu. Bobby Jindal better run for President because after deciding to decline $100 million in stimulus funding to aid more than 24,000 long-term unemployed workers, he might not be getting re-elected in Louisiana.
