Flying meat!

OK, listen up folks: if Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) calls something, "ignorance and stupidity," and "the dumbest thing I've ever heard," wouldn't you want to seek out that something and support it? Well, of course you would.

So go to AmericaGivesBack.org and sign the letter saying you'd like every region of the country to give up some dumb pork-barrel project to help fund Katrina relief.

For example, Alaska could get back the half-million taxpayer dollars it spent painting a plane to look like a salmon! (Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, asked, "Is there something wrong with these fish that warrants such an expensive program to convince us to eat them?") Or at the very least, avoid spending the ten million more that are about to be appropriated!

Citizens Against Government Waste has a copy of the No Pork Pledge itself and a list of those legislators who have endorsed it.

And for the record, I think if the airlines have become too financially strapped to serve you food on their airplanes, they certainly shouldn't be depicting it thereon.
