The government loves to spend our money.  Bridges to Nowhere and now a $350,000 NASCAR sponsorship…  I’m not kidding.

FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has decided to spend $350K on 3 NASCAR races to get the word out on the DTV transition.  David Gilliland will be our driver and the Number 38 car’s hood will display: “Are you ready for digital?”

For this reckless spend, Citizens Against Government Waste has awarded Chairman Martin the Porker of the Month.  Not to mention our car crashed and burned on its first race!

Here’s hoping we get some better finishes in Phoenix (November 9) or Miami (November 16)
