One Scary Piece of Pork

I know, I know … I wasn’t going to blog on politics until November 5th. But I heard Senator McCain’s gaffe while I was puttering on the computer during Tuesday’s debates. Even without knowing the funding request was denied, I knew that his attempt to pin $3M in pork was a problem. Alan Boyle nails the issue and links sixteen astronomy bloggers who have each added their own nail to the coffin. It would seem the Republican candidate has just pitched the space vote.

For the record, this image is not the $3M “overhead projector” recently installed as part of a $93M (mostly public bonds) makeover at LA’s Griffith Observatory.
