The Tally Ho

$40,000,000



So, now that the inauguration is over, I guess it's time to tally up the tab. Will it reach the $40 million that people were projecting? It seems odd to me that a President who has racked up the largest debt in our country's history and has dragged us into a war that will not be ending anytime soon would spend so lavishly on his SECOND inauguration party. Geez, act like you've already been there before!

So, what could we have spent this $40 million on instead of a foolish party for a bunch of rich white people?

_200 armored Humvees with the best armor for troops in Iraq.
_Vaccinations and preventive health care for 22 million children in regions devastated by the tsunami.
_A down payment on the nation's deficit, which hit a record-breaking $412 billion last year.

I know one thing it could buy that a few of us would enjoy. A whole lot of this (which I think we'll need over the next four years):
