Oh, the Irony

One more sign that Iraq and Afghanistan are going well, the economy is growing and, well, some people will say anything to cover their own asses.
Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) held up a bill that would create a free, searchable database of government contracts and grants because he was worried about the proposal's price tag, his spokesman told me this afternoon. Its cost has been estimated at $15 million.

This is the most transparent lie in a while. I wonder if, after he said, the reporter giggled and said, "No, seriously, why?" The Surgeon General has warned that thinking about Ted Stevens complaining about a price tag for a government program too long will in fact make your head explode. It's a first-of-its-kind in science, but this is extraordinary bullshit from this guy.
