It is certainly not the largest waste of tax dollars, but certainly one of the oddest. Look for “Governor Rendell” who makes an appearance about halfway through. I think the idea for this video came from Michael Scott, before he went with this one.

Reason answers, “I don’t know. A Geddy Lee sex tape? A George W. Bush endorsement? Almost anything else?“
