The Stimulus at Work

Categories: Politics

Some have said that the stimulus hasn't saved any jobs, but here is a case where at least one job was saved.

Take for instance Oregon State University Athletic Director Bob DeCarolis.

Now Mr. DeCarolis was considering firing their basketball coach, Craig Robinson...

...after an 8-11 start (2-5 in the Pac 10 conference).

When word reached Washington, Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter...

...was dispatched to Corvallis with $17 million in stimulus money for the university.

Thankfully, Craig Robinson's job is safe for another year.

For those of you unfamiliar with Coach Robinson...

...he just so happens to be the brother-in-law of none other than Barack Obama.

NOW YOU'RE CATCHING ON!  That's right - he is the brother of Michelle Obama!

But hey, can't we all come to the conclusion that Coach Robinson's job security was just a coincidence?  I'm sure of it.  Aren't you?!

Thank goodness for the stimulus!!!  But $17 million for one job?

I wonder what your job is worth?
