Redistribute that 1.4 Mil!

"...President Barack Obama will donate the $1.4 million cash award that comes with the Nobel Peace Prize to charity. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says it's likely that more than one charity will share the windfall.

Gibbs said the president has yet to decide which charities will benefit from the award, announced early Friday morning..."

How ambiguous, huh? I have set a Blackberry reminder for a month from now to look up where this money goes. Since he's so quick to spend my cash, I want to know what he's doing with his. Maybe he can give it to ACORN so they can pass it along to that nice young couple looking to buy a house for their burgeoning business...

Remember this (and from HuffPo even):

"...From 2000 through 2004, the senator and his wife never gave more than $3,500 a year in charitable donations -- about 1 percent of their annual earnings. In 2005, however, that total jumped to $77,315 (4.7 percent of annual earnings), and to $60,307 in 2006 (6.1 percent). (source)

Isn't it 10% tithe to the church alone...? Not so altruistic progressive with his own cash is he?
