Do the math

As others have pointed out, one trillion dollars–which is what this stimulus “ye dare not call it pork” bill is going to cost–divided by 4 million jobs is……$250,000 per job!  Where does one apply for one of these jobs?  More to the point, wouldn’t it have been possible for at least one of our numerically-challenged White House press corps have asked about it?

Teleprompter issues aside, I thought Obama put in a pretty impressive performance last night. But then, it’s a lot easier to look good when all you get is softball questions.
