The Cost of Douchebaggery

According to the Silicon Valley Mercury News, last week's rally in support of former BART Police officer Johannes Mehserle will cost Walnut Creek taxpayers upwards of $60,000.

In a continued effort to impart perspective and mockery, I have employed my 12th grade remedial mathematics skills to come up with a few other things for which that money could have been used:

1) 1,000 tickets to the live Bold Fresh Tour, starring Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly

2) new truck to transport the 30-foot billboard depicting an aborted late-term fetus, which pro-lifers display routinely outside the Walnut Creek Planned Parenthood

3) 6,000 boxes of Franzia White Zinfandel

4) complete mommy-makeovers for four needy soccer moms (includes post-op wardrobe furnished by Lululemon Athletica!) 

5) 3,000 Viagra tablets

6) small yogurt (with topping!) from Yogurt Park for every teenage girl in Walnut Creek

7) one-year’s supply of donuts for every officer in the Walnut Creek Police Department

8) one-year’s salary for a previously pink-slipped Oakland teacher, plus more than $20,000 in school supplies for the 2010-2011 academic year

9) $100 PF Chang’s gift card for every black person in Walnut Creek

10) one million teabags
