One of the problems with big government is that politics creeps into everything.

Today's example?

Counties that supported Obama last year have reaped twice as much money per person from the administration's $787 billion economic stimulus package as those that voted for his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain.

Oh, and when do we finally get to put "stimulus" in scare quotes to indicate that the term is being used ironically, given that all this money has really been an Obama-supporter-payoff scheme, rather than a successful economic stimulant?
