Bonus points: He includes a bit from Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) attacking "the chattering class that so much focuses on those little, tiny, yes porky amendments [in the stimulus bill]" and proclaiming that "the American people really don't care."

Double-bonus points: Reason columnist and Mercatus Center scholar Veronique de Rugy gets airtime declaiming among other things Sen. Harry Reid's multi-billion-dollar Nevada railroad boondoggle. Approximately 3.30 minutes.
