$20 million to use Google

I typically keep this blog politics-free, and I’m not aiming this at any one party. I’m sure both sides of the aisle are equally clueless. But this story is too much:

Pentagon Moves Toward Monitoring Media

The contract offers $20 million and ‘calls for monitoring the tone of Iraq news stories filed by U.S. and foreign media’.

Wow.

For $500,000 I’ll teach them to use Google. And maybe even teach them to use a blog for the ‘Arabic version of the multinational force’s web site’.

I can save the federal government $19,500,000 in one fell swoop. Long live internet marketing…
