Dave Barry's "Year in Review"

I'm a couple of days late, as per my usual.....

so anyway, via doubleplusundead, the much anticipated link to Dave Barry's "Year in Review" column:

In government news, top Washington thinkers, looking for a way to goose the economy along, come up with the "Cash for Clunkers'' program, under which the federal government provides a financial inducement for people to take functional cars, which are mostly American-made, to car dealers, who deliberately destroy these cars and sell the people new replacement cars, which are mostly foreign-made. This program, which was budgeted for $1 billion, ends up costing $3 billion and is halted after a month. The administration declares that it has been a huge success, which everybody understands to mean that it will never, ever be repeated. With this mission accomplished, the top Washington thinkers are free to train all of their brainpower on the nation's health-care system.
Read the whole thing.
