"....a failure to communicate"

You can't make this stuff up, as they say.

The actual contracts used in the implementation of the incoming Obama Administration's massive economic stimulus plan will be available to the public online - that's what Peter Orszag, the nominee for Office of Management and Budget chief, told the Senate government affairs committee today. According to TPM's Elana Schor, Orszag told the committee:

We plan to create a Web site that will contain information about the contracts and include PDFs or contracts themselves, and also financial information about the contracts.

Which prompted Senator Joe Lieberman's priceless rejoinder: "Define PDFs."

Maybe he and Ted Stevens went to the same briefings about how stuff works.
