If you're like me, you are frequently appalled by misplaced priorities and waste associated with a lot of government projects. (Not that the corporate world is necessarily better, but that's a post for another day.)
Over at Crime and Federalism, Mike has an interesting post on how easy it is to spend OPM1, even when those spending it wouldn't contribute a penny of their own funds to the "worthy cause" they claim to support. I take issue with his partisan stance that this is something "liberals" do, as it's a common trait among just about anybody with access to OPM (and seems to worsen as accountability is removed).
