Who knew that flu might brew??

This is Michael Steele, who is the single most entertaining nut job politician this side of Blagojevich, explaining why Republicans should not be held accountable for voting money for pandemic research and prevention out of the stimulus package.

His point, to the extent there is one, is that of course they did not know this bird-swine-pig flu was going to happen so they shouldn't be blamed for tossing it out of what was supposed to be a jobs bill. Okay, fair enough. 

Of course you're not being faulted for being unable to predict the future Mike.  You're being faulted for knowingly running the risk of distorting the value of this research for your own cherry
picked short term political purposes.
