OK, Clothahump's first effort was a fail, but there are better examples if you know where to look:

Quote:
Florida officials are investigating an unemployment agency that spent public money to give 6,000 superhero capes to the jobless.

Workforce Central Florida spent more than $14,000 on the red capes as part of its "Cape-A-Bility Challenge" public relations campaign. The $73,000 campaign features a cartoon character "Dr. Evil Unemployment" who needs to be vanquished....
Admittedly, it's not obvious why this is a "liberal" idea per se, but it's a government benefits program, which is close enough. So, let's just forget that first embarrassment ever happened and pick up with this one, shall we?
