Earmarks? We ain’t got no stinkin’ earmarks!

Well, Senator McConnell, yes you do. In fact, a lot of your Republican colleagues who squealed so loudly about the omnibus spending bill and voted against cloture, do, too. Twenty eight out of thirty five.

Dane Ryan, a student at the University of Minnesota and an intern in Keith Ellison’s office, has the whole list at his blog Popular Dissent. [With this post, Dane earns his way on to the Cucking Stool blogroll.]

The use of earmarks exploded under Republican control of the Congress; Spot guesses they’re just having trouble giving them up. Someone should have mentioned that it was Lent.
