3 million dollar overhead projector?

During last night’s debate, Sen. McCain made a reference to a three million dollar “overhead projector” for the Adler Planetarium as an example of wasteful spending.  Spacewriter eloquently explains the difference between an “overhead projector” and a planetarium projection system here “Who Knew a Planetarium Was a Political Weapon” to John McCain (I think the rest of us know the difference).  

Also here is a follow up which includes a statement from the Adler Planetarium: An Interesting Use of Facts 

There’s no need for me to write about this Spacewriter says it all.
