The government spent more than $40 million for the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky investigations but only $15 million for the 9/11 Commission to examine the terrorist attacks of Sep. 11, 2001.Outrageous isn't exactly the word I would use to describe this, though since I was stealing the post anyways, I decided I might as well steal the title too. A better word to describe this in my opinion would be typical. What do you expect from the party of Tom Delay? What do you expect from a party who sells doctor of the year awards? They opposed this commission because they were more worried about something embarrassing coming out about the Bush administration's incompetence then the security of our country. Though when it comes to embarrassing a president for getting a BJ, they're all for wasting money on frivolous investigation to find out every detail of a personal relationship between two consenting adults.
