2 pounds of ham at $595,000
Red State/ Recovery.gov ^ | July 18, 2009 | drealoth

Promoted from the diaries. We’d assume that this was some sort of data entry error, but then again, we have no reason to believe that at all. It is, after all, government ham.

I give up. I freaking give up. I tried to sit on the fence, reserve judgement. I tried to be a lefty among right wingers, a righty among left wingers. I told myself, hey, RedState is just as crazy as the Daily Kos, two sides of the same coin. I told myself that I’d give Obama a year before I made any judgment. But ham is now $1.1 million a pound, which changes everything. You guys win. This is wack

That’s the shipping unit size. Government actually paid $1.50/lb. Anybody can buy ham for less than that. Moron Vilsack walked right into Drudge’s trap lol.

When conservatives said that Obama & Pelosi’s stimulous plan was full of pork, they weren’t kidding.
