I really have nothing at all to add to this description of Porkulus by the great Michael Ramirez of Investors Business Daily. Ramirez latches onto the phrase “shovel-ready”, used to describe the supposed status of the years-long projects in the stimulus package, and makes clear its real definition:
Unfortunately, this will prove more and more prescient as the years — and the debt — roll forward.
Ramirez has a terrific collection of his works: Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion, which covers the entire breadth of Ramirez’ career, and it gives a fascinating look at political history. Read my review here, and watch my interviews with Ramirez here and here.
