I’m guessing the speeding metaphor in this cartoon from Gary Varvel of the Indianapolis Star (click through for Pelosi’s quote) is not intended to critique spending stimulus dollars on highway expansion. But if you stick House Appropriations Chair David Obey in the driver’s seat, it makes for a rather pointed comment on the reckless approach to transportation policy exhibited by some Congressional leaders.
