Quote of the year: There are two sides to the coin edition

I just put up a CNN article concerning the 100 worst stimulus projects. The article goes on to say that some people believe the report is a bit one sided. (It is; the point is you can never have enough examples for class of the government funding, say, international ant research.) But check out this nugget, from the lead researcher for a group receiving money to develop choreography that didn't like the cut of the report's jib:

"I think it's sad that this research money that is really allowing innovation and funding students doing great research is being used as a political tool," Latulipe said.

You just can't make this stuff up.
