Introducing the Obameter

The St. Petersburg Times, I’m presuming Florida, not Russia*, has set up a website called Politifact containing The Obameter, a way to hold our current president accountable for the campaign promises he made. One of my favorite promises is to double funding for basic science research. We should be able to afford an extra few grand.**

* Yes, I know it’s from Florida. That was a geography joke. A bad one, I know.
** Yes, I realize that current funding for science research is higher than three grand. That was an unfunded mandate joke. Equally poor as the previous geography joke, but not too bad as far as unfunded mandate jokes go.
