The best laid schemes o' mice an' men.

It's stunts like this which make it very hard to take the Republican party seriously anymore. They are up in arms over a proposal to spend $30 million on mice when no such proposal exists.

“There are no federal wetland restoration projects in line to get funded in San Francisco,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill said. “Neither the Speaker nor her staff have had any involvement in this initiative. The idea that $30 million will be spent to save mice is a total fabrication.”
A total fabrication. And yet that is what numerous Republican speakers (about half way through the video we get to the mouse stuff) chose to address when voicing their opposition to the stimulus package.

They, frankly, look simply ridiculous when they hone in on this kind of utter nonsense. How can anyone take these people seriously? And, more importantly, how can one hope to achieve bipartisanship with idiots?
