In a time when everyone is talking about cutting back, reducing government spending, and pulling in the reigns on wasteful projects, the Senate leader announces he will fight his own president to keep his earmarks!

What a slime ball!

Good old Harry. Always elbow deep in the cookie jar.

That was the position of Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as well, just a few short weeks ago, if you recall.

He was led kicking and screaming away from that, against his own preferred judgment.

Yup. Sometimes people have to be bludgeoned in order for them to see the light.

And they were both wrong.

One saw the light.

One hasn't.

What is your point?

Don't worry, they will soon be back at the trough. They have already been there by bowing down to special interests and threatening to bring Govt to a halt if the the top 5% didn't get their handouts.

Well thank goodness they carried him away. Everyone needs to drop the earmarks.
