We all remember President Obama’s solemn assertion that the "stimulus" would be spent “without waste, without inefficiency, without fraud.” 

Since the passage of the package, we and others have pointed to many examples of where this has already not been the case. Now it looks like a little critter is gnawing on "stimulus" proponents’ credibility. Writes the Washington Times:

The tiny mouse that became a hotly disputed symbol of wasteful spending in the congressional debate over the $787 billion economic stimulus bill has returned to pester House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The Obama administration quietly announced last week that as much as $16.1 million from the stimulus program is going to save the San Francisco Bay area habitat of, among other things, the endangered salt marsh harvest mouse.

Sounds like Joe Biden’s "dog that ain’t barked yet" just did.
