    Maybe the Pentagon's legendary $600 toilet seat was a bargain.

    The personal bathroom used by the secretary of the Interior is so swanky that its renovation cost $222,000. No detail was overlooked: It has a $3,500 sub-zero refrigerator (hey, if you're going to have a fridge in the bathroom, it might as well be a good one) and a $689 faucet. At least the "vintage tissue holder" was cheap: just $65 bucks.

    The renovations were the subject of an internal audit by the General Services Administration, which has responsibility for most federal government properties.

    In a classic bureaucratic understatement, the audit report noted, "A number of the items incorporated into the renovation project call into question the need for luxurious materials."


    No wounder why our politicians can't make a decent budget and curtail the ever mounting deficit, they keep spending OUR tax dollars foolishly.

    Well, it is a very important room. Afterall, that's where they get most of their ideas.

    It's for cold bidet water. It wakes you up from a long crap after you fall asleep from thinking so hard. It also prevents hemorrhoids.

    :doh: ...the audit will also cost another $100k and, ultimately, there will be zero accountability.
