Stimulus Money Finally Making Its Way to ‘Working Families’, So to Speak

It’s the 200th day since the stimulus passed. The RNC has collected a list of 200 claims about what it will do.

Meanwhile, today The New York Times tells us, “The mob is eager, too. Federal and state investigators who track organized crime believe that some members have geared up to take advantage of the swift and enormous cash influx — if they have not already — looking, as the old Sicilian expression goes, to wet their beaks.”

Look, give the Obama administration credit. They said they were going to create jobs, and now the families are hiring leg-breakers, lookouts, loan-sharks, molls, hookers, and consiglieres.

We skeptics thought the idea of passing the stimulus was nuts; now we learn it was merely Paulie Walnuts.
