An original idea

Came across this headline on CNN's Political Ticker:
Apparently, Governor Sarah Palin came up with this "original" idea and is pitching it to voters:
"For instance, as Alaska's governor, I put the government's checkbook online so that people can see where their money's going. We'll bring that kind of transparency, that responsibility, and accountability back. We're going to bring that back to D.C."
The article then points out this little fact:
"There's just one problem with proposing to put the federal checkbook online – somebody's already done it. His name is Barack Obama."
So maybe this amounts to a little less than partisan politics but it does highlight some interesting work done by Obama in the Senate  (not to mention it was a bi-partisan effort).
A little more interesting than this whole issue is the actual website created by Senator Obama's proposal:
On a side note: Are you all getting tired of the political blogs yet?
