Erskine Bowles, the former Clinton flunky and Board Of Director of McLeod USA while they went down the tubes, namechecks the Porkforest in this article:

Just Tuesday, Bowles launched an ad touting his role in negotiating the first balanced federal budget in 30 years.

"Washington's spending is just plain out of control," Bowles says in the ad. "Last year they spent millions to build a rain forest in Iowa. I like rain forests -- but in Iowa? Come on."

Sorry, Irksome, the rainforest hasn't been built yet. Besides, don't you have a lot to answer for when it comes to ruining McLeod USA and Connecticut pension funds at the same time?
