Roy Blunt Attacks Imaginary Stimulus Package

Friday, February 27, 2009 at 9:31 am

At CPAC’s presidential banquet last night, Rep. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) argued that Americans would turn against the stimulus package “as this thing unravels.” Specifically:

They’re going to find out about the $30 million that the speaker put in for wetland mouse preservation. Lemme tell ya, when Missouri mice find out about this, they’re going to be upset. Our mice are just as good as some San Francisco mice. Or the bullet train that Harry Reid put in to go from Disneyland from Las Vegas.

Blunt actually reminisced about joking with a reporter who asked him if the “Disneyland train” attack was true or not. But it’s not true, and neither is the “mice preservation” attack.
