Congress + Pork + Gore = (insert flushing sound here)

This is just too much ... 

In November, the Democratic-led House spent about $89,000 on so-called carbon offsets. This purchase was supposed to cancel out greenhouse-gas emissions from House buildings -- including half of the U.S. Capitol -- by triggering an equal reduction in emissions elsewhere. Some of the money went to farmers in North Dakota, for tilling practices that keep carbon buried in the soil. But some farmers were already doing this, for other reasons, before the House paid a cent. Other funds went to Iowa, where a power plant had been temporarily rejiggered to burn more cleanly. But that test project had ended more than a year before the money arrived.

Not only did the Democrats pay for carbon offsets that offset nothing ... but they gave the money to one of their biggest political contributors. Somebody please ... stop it ... my side hurts .... bwahahahahahahhahahahah. No stop it really guys ... you're killin me.
