The blackout during last night’s Super Bowl prompted this tweet from America’s science laureate, Bill Maher:
Thats just f*****g embarassing for America. But our infrastructure is crumbling so it kinda fits. Yoga in the dark anyone?
Keep in mind that only the Superdome had an electrical issue and the rest of New Orleans was fine, coupled with the news that they still have no clear idea what even happened yet to cause the localized problem, so, sure, blame a lack of government spending on infrastructure.
Maher conveniently leaves out the $336 million in enhancements to the Superdome since Hurricane Katrina in his crumbling infrastructure analysis.
