Speaking of the stimulus package… check out this excerpt from a Family Research Council action alert:

Exactly what kind of stimulus did Speaker Nancy Pelosi have in mind? That’s a question more Americans should be asking now that details are trickling in about the controversial $825 billion “economic recovery” package. $200 million for lawn care in Washington, D.C., $360 million to potentially be used to put on transsexual beauty pageants and erotic art shows.

Sounds pretty awesome. Sign me up!
UPDATE: As I wrote in comments:

The Family Research Council basically looked at a line in the stimulus bill that mentioned funding for the arts or something, and chose to describe “arts funding” in a way that would be most upsetting to its base. There are most definitely not line-item appropriations for trans beauty pageants and erotic art shows.
Um, so no, I don’t think erotic art shows are an essential part of economic stimulus.
Yes, I was making a joke and mocking the FRC. (This is why they need to make HTML tags for /HUMOR/.)
