Whatever it is, the Navy needs money for it

Via Wired, this is an actual solicitation from the United States Navy for stimulus funds. For what? I don’t know.  How ’bout a flying boat that transforms into a robot? Whatever. Just dump the money in front of the Pentagon, and we’ll take care of the rest. Capiche?

Or, as Wired so aptly put it: “We’re sure that somewhere, at some Washington bar, an earnest crusader against Pentagon waste sees this pop up on his BlackBerry and tells his bartender to make it a double.”

    Isn’t this basically how the bank and auto industry bailouts got approved?

    At least they put some effort into it. This is just lazy.
