‘Flight FAA, You Are Cleared to Party!’

And in other fiscal responsibility and transparency in the age of Hope and Change news… the FAA just spent $5 million on a three-week-long Christmas party:

A series of seminars in Atlanta officially were aimed at training managers on a new air-traffic-controller contract but degenerated into one big bash. According to ABC News, the seminars didn’t even cover half of the 100 new provisions in a contract that went into effect two months ago.

Participants apparently also were too busy partying on the taxpayer dime to learn much. Whistleblowers told ABC tales of rampant drunken debauchery, including one attendee propositioning an undercover reporter for her services as a prostitute.

Hey, the FAA has nothing else to worry about, right? But after watching how much of the media bent over for Obama in the past couple of years, it isn’t hard to understand why some of those reporters are mistaken for whores.

The FAA has received a fortune in “stimulus” funding and plenty of it has been wasted or misused, so why not throw a party?

Sheriff Joe, where are you?
