If the last few days have shown us anything, they’ve shown us that not only isn’t the nascent Obama Administration invulnerable; they’re also uncoordinated, inept, corrupt, and clueless. We Conservatives have been wringing out hands and moaning about everything the left would ram through Congress, not needing Republican votes to pass their pork and waste.
Much to everyone’s surprise (and largely due to the uncoordination, ineptitude, corruption, and cluelessness) the Obama-ites suddenly *DO* need Republicans, simply because their own corruption and pork projects are turning off other Democrats in disgust. The sheer size of the “Stimulus” project threatens to bring hyper-inflation and crushing taxes for the forseeable future. Just how big is this “Stimulus” bill?
If you started right now and spent a million dollars every day until you had spent the principle amount of the Stimulus Bill ($825 billion) today, you would spend your last penny on June 17, 4395. Well, you wouldn’t. Your descendants 82 generations from now would. If someone had started spending a million dollars a day starting on January 1, 1 AD, they would still have over $138 billion dollars left and a little over 380 more years to go.
It’s an unprecedented amount of money. It’s the largest government program — ever. No question; nothing even close. It’s patently ridiculous. Michelle Malkin has a rdiciulously long list HERE; including such gems as the “A $246 million tax break for Hollywood movie producers to buy motion picture film,” and “$248 million for furniture at the new Dept. of Homeland Security headquarters.” (Why? Where are they headquartered now? Holiday Inn?)
The #TCOT Report (Top Conservatives On Twitter) has a message for Republicans in the Senate:
This is ridiculous, and we can make a difference here. We need to call, phone, fax, e-mail our Senators. NOW — and often, until they’re sick of it:

By the way, did you notice both our Senators have, NOT direct e-mail forms, but “Leg Forms” that dump e-mails in a system for review by some office bureacrat? Guess which one is more accessible?
Go, call now. Operators are standing by.
