As funny as it is to see these guys twist in the wind, they should have just said "We put them in the bill but will vote against them because we don't believe it should pass but if it does, we don't want to deprive our constituents while other states are taking a greater share of funding. Earmarks are bad but as long as they're around, they should be distributed somewhat equally."

Tomorrow is Another Day

"This is the wrong time to raise taxes, say the politicians. The economy is fragile, say the economists. The recovery is halting, say the pundits. In a few years, they all affirm, we will need to get our fiscal house in order. Of course, just a few years ago, the economy was doing fine, and Washington decided it wasn't the moment to worry about the deficit. Instead, over the past decade, we cut taxes, added a massive entitlement program (prescription drugs for the elderly) and spent trillions on two wars. Somehow, no matter what the economic clock says, it's never time in Washington to cut spending or raise taxes. Call it manana economics."- Fareed Zakaria
