Her new manner of finding money for her district without actually calling that money an earmark is to send out "grant applications" to local units of government. Prendergast over at Dump Bachmann does an excellent job of revealing this new found love of grant money over earmarks and exposing the inherent hypocrisy in such a position.
Due to this new found love of grant money, I am posing a new challenge to readers throughout the 6th District. Come up with ideas, ANY IDEAS, for grant money that you or your community need. Those needs can be as serious as a new bridge or library or as foolish as your imagination warrants. The purpose here is twofold: to see just how much grant money Michele Bachmann can obtain and to give her minions some work to do.
Here are the rules:
- Use the following criteria from her to write your grant (the better it sounds the better your chances).
- The grant must be created electronically in order to submit it to Congresswoman Bachmann. This seems strange given that she only sent out a paper copy to local units of government.
- Send a copy of your grant to email@example.com and a copy to me at political_muse(at)hotmail.com
