Oh John McCain…

26Jun09

Found this post on Mike The Mad Biologist, and felt the need to share.

In short, Senator John McCain makes a snide comment about what he suspects is a pork project, this time: “$650,000 for beaver management in North Carolina and Mississippi – how does one manage a beaver?”

And once again, it turns out that beaver management is actually a very big deal, with very serious economic consequences.

I’m developing a theory. The probability that a project is useful, efficient, under time and under budget, scientifically well informed, etc. instantaneously approaches 1 the moment John McCain comments about it. I swear, the greatest praise most projects could dream of is to be labeled as wasteful spending by McCain.
