Krusty Konservative: Show me the money

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

I was listening to WHO the other day when a top of the hour news
report came on by Jim Boyd. One of the items he was reporting on was
Governor Culver's trip to D.C. to ask for assistance. The report
featured a Culver proudly saying he had requested 1.2 billion dollars.
The weird thing is I almost expected the Big Lug to say that billion
with a "B". Anyway, I didn't really think much more about it till I
read today's article in the Register stating that the American Red
Cross thinks Culver's number is inflated, not by a little bit, but by
50% or so. Now, I'm all for Iowa getting its fair share, but I don't
think it is right to fleece the American taxpayer for more than we
need.
