To Paraphrase Rusty Griswald

Dad, I think they're gonna pork us.

The pork twins: Hodes, Shea-Porter love earmarks

REPS. Carol Shea-Porter and Paul Hodes said they would bring New Hampshire values to Washington by pinching pennies and voting against special interests. They must have meant "Republican special interests" because they have voted to waste millions of taxpayer dollars on useless pork projects requested by their fellow Democrats (and one influential Republican).

Read the whole thing.

Not surprisingly, they both thought John Murtha's fictitious "Center for Instrumented Critical Infrastructure" (actually a front for a wealthy campaign donor's private NPO) was a perfectly deserving recipient of a $1,000,000 kiss on the cheek.

But, hey, it's not like it's their money. What the hell do they care?

I guess now it's "Live free or die, but waste millions in taxpayer dollars on stupid/corrupt shit like this as if the world were gonna end tomorrow."

November '08 can't come soon enough.
