Colbert on the infamous $16 muffins

Remember the infamous kerfuffle over $16 muffins that happened when the Office of the Inspector General said the Department of Justice was overspending on its conferences. Quickly dubbed "Muffingate," some deemed that, even though in reality the "muffin" on the invoice was just shorthand for a continental breakfast of sorts for which $16 is a fair price, it still could be called an argument meetings can't win.

But once The Colbert Report points out the absurdity of the whole thing, well, maybe we actually can call this one a win, at least after the fact?
