Check out the new scoreboard they're building at Turner Field in Atlanta. Jesus god!

Speaking of going overboard, did you all hear about the amount of money that went into the presidential inauguration? Ri-goddamn-diculous. I heard about people that paid like hundreds of thousands of dollars for the chance to go to one of the balls, and have their suitcases packed by servants. Crap like that. Why does Bush love to rub all this in the face of poor people everywhere? Here's a nice stat for you:

1,160,000: Number of girls who could be sent to school for a year in Afghanistan with the amount of money lavished on the inauguration.

Find more like that here. Terrible job by Bush, the Steinbrenner of presidents.

Comments:
Clinton spent more in today's dollars. You're being ridiculous.
 
No, what's ridiculous is that scoreboard.

Only Ted Turner. Only Ted Turner would need to have a television screen larger than the size of the average American residence ...
 
Er. Actually, no. Clinton did not spend more in today's dollars. Clinton spent about 3/4 of what Bush spent. Still quite a bit, but noticeably less.

Also... we weren't at war then, and there weren't US troops complaining having to buy their own equipment online to feel protected.
