F-22 Stimulus

The big trouble with any kind of stimulus bill is that it has to pass congress and there’s virtually no chance of the congressional wringer doing anything other than making things worse. For example, defense contractors’ plans to get a bailout for the financially and strategically absurd F-22 Raptor is gaining steam on the Hill. One good thing about a McCain presidency would have been that a former naval aviator in the White House would have been the deadliest foe ever faced by the U.S. Air Force and its various boondoggles and there’s been some indication that some of the Obama administration’s outreach to McCain has focused on this project.
