A muffin does not cost $16

So you remember those $16 muffins, the ones served at a DOJ conference a couple of years ago, the ones conservatives are using as yet more evidence of government bloat, of government spending run wild?

A complete and utter myth. There were no $16 muffins.

Thanks to Kevin Drum for pointing this out -- though, of course, the myth has already become part of the right's anti-government narrative.

Wherein, of course, the truth has no place whatsoever.
