One of our enterprising readers has figured out “the number” of the Web site on which the Obama administration announces stimulus projects. Our reader has pointed out one such project in our own back yard.
According to the Web site, Wisconsin’s Lakeside Foods is the recipient of $16.7 million in stimulus funds awarded by the Department of Agriculture for a project at Lakeside’s processing plant in Plainview, Minnesota. (Plainview is in Minnesota’s First Congressional District, represented by Democrat Tim Walz, and is the hometown of author Jon Hassler). The description of work/service performed is “canned pork.”
This is stimulus with a post-modern, self-referential kind of twist.

UPDATE: The Drudge Report links to Ag Secretary Vilsack’s pork defense.
