Your Stimulus Dollars at Work, Part XXIV

I’m told the administration is filing this under “erections saved or created”:

The NBC Investigative Unit has raised questions about two grants totaling nearly $1.5 million dollars distributed to the University of California San Francisco. The money was part of the federal stimulus program and went to studies into the erectile dysfunction of overweight middle aged men and the accurate reporting of someone’s sexual history.

This is part of our ongoing series of investigations by the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit into who got federal stimulus dollars, and why some projects did not break ground more than two years after receiving the grant.

The Investigative Unit looked closely at the federal government’s decision to spend nearly $1.5 million dollars of taxpayer money, money that came here to California. Grant number 1R01HD056950-01A2 was among the thousands of grants funded, receiving $1.2 million dollars. This grant studied how to improve the accuracy of how people responded to questions about their sexual history.

The government, which consists to a great degree of overweight middle aged men, just happens to throw our money at a study about erectile dysfunction in overweight middle aged men? What a coincidence.

And what’s with the “accuracy” of questions about sexual history? Haven’t these idiots ever thought to simply apply the “rule of three”?
