24-Hour Dorman: Pork calling

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

It was inevitable. Gov. Chet Culver would ask Iowa communities to submit proposals for how to spend $750 million in infrastructure bonds. The list would come out, a few projects would seem a little goofy, and Republicans would race each other to call the whole thing pork. The Des Moines Register plays its fateful role in this narrative by leading its story on the bonding wish list with the "Tower of Invincibility" proposed by the folks in Vedic City. Locals say the $8 million to $12 million 12-story tower would be a big attraction, with restaurants and office space etc.
