823 Million Dollars

Wow, can we go out for bids on that?

For some perspective, the cost of adding a lane of Interstate highway is estimated to be $1.6 million to $3.1 million per lane-mile. There is something like 45 miles of two lane highway on I-94 between Pewaukee and Cottage Grove per a quick Google Maps computation. Based on these estimates, the cost to widen I-94 from two to three lanes in each direction would be between $144 and $279 million dollars.

That is only one-fifth to one-third of the cost of creating Doyle's "high speed" rail line. A rail line that will have minuscule ridership, be expensive to ride, be extremely inconvenient for almost all riders, and take longer to get between Milwaukee and Madison for any conceivable purpose.

Well done Obama. You cannot help but waste money.

What a CHOKER! But he's the Vikings' choker now.

I told some Minnesota acquaintances that Favre would break their hearts. He came through. Favre is incapable of winning the big game.

Cheap Political Advice

If Scott Walker has a pick-up truck he should drive it everywhere. If not, he should buy one.

The congressional Dems should fire Reid and Pelosi and elect moderate leaders, maybe even Blue Dogs. They've got to wash that far left stink off of themselves.

Related, a great line from Ed Morrissey.
They (the Dems) seem convinced that the only way to rescue themselves from the trap in which they have caught themselves is to chew off the foot that’s still free.
