Why Did The Salamander Cross The Road? To Get $150,000 In Obama Stimulus

April 7, 2010

Who can forget such classic moments in liberalism as the woman who showed up to get “Obama money”:

ROGULSKI:Why are you here ?

Woman: To get some money

ROGULSKI: What kind of Money ?

Woman: Obama money

ROGULSKI: Where’s it comin; from ?

Woman: Obama

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it from ?

WOMAN: I don’t know, his stash. I don’t know. I don’t know where he got it from, but he’s givin’ it to us. And we love him. That’s why we voted for him. O-ba-ma. O-ba-ma.

And, of course, there was the woman who cheered Obama’s victory because he was going to fill her gas tank and pay for her mortgage:

“It was the most touching moment of my life! I never thought this day would ever happen! I won’t have to work to put gas in my car! I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage!

You know, if I help HIM, he’s going to help us!”

And, it turns out that anyone who would have thought liberals had anything over salamanders IQ-wise were wrong.  Because the salamanders are actually bringing home the Obama pork, whereas these two Obama supporters are still most likely waiting to get Obama to fill their gas tanks and pay their mortgages out of his stash:

Vt. town gets $150K grant for salamander crossing

MONKTON, Vt. – Future generations of salamanders in one Vermont town are going to be getting some help crossing the road.

The Monkton Conservation Commission says it has won a $150,000 state grant to install one or two culverts under a stretch of road to protect salamanders, other amphibians, reptiles and small mammals crossing between a swampy area and the uplands.

The Burlington Free Press says the project will be the first wildlife-crossing retrofit of a Vermont highway.

While it seems quite obvious at this point that salamanders are much smarter than Obama voters, there nonetheless remains the question that salamanders may not be smart enough to realize that they need to use the culverts.

Mind you, salamanders failing to use the culvert wouldn’t in any way, shape or form undermine their claim to intellectual superiority over Obama voters.  Remember, when it comes to Obama stimulus money, it doesn’t matter whether the money actually gets invested in anything that actually makes any sense or ever gets used; it only matters that you got it.  And the salamanders clearly got their share of the pig.
