silly volcano! silly governor!

alaska volcano erupts. louisiana governor looks like idiot. via zach roth at tpm muckraker:
Remember how, during his big prime-time speech last month, Louisiana's Republican governor Bobby Jindal found time to mock the Obama administration for "wasteful spending" in the stimulus bill, including "$140 million for something called 'volcano monitoring'"?

Alaska's Mount Redoubt, 100 miles southwest of Anchorage, erupted last night. And a USGS geologist confirmed that a portion of the stimulus spending for volcano monitoring that Jindal lampooned has been slated to go to USGS monitoring Redoubt.
