Republican Ban on Earmarks Violated after 3 Days

That didn't take long.

The bold anti-earmark initiative of the new (read: same old) Republican Party lasted exactly three days. As the Washington Post reports, Arizona Sen. John Kyl used the earmark process this week—the same week the senate GOP hotshots vowed to ban the practice.

Ah, the old "All for me and none for thee". Republicans never disappoint, do they?

Only always.

In other news: You'd better not pout, better not cry, Palin is comin' to T-town today! (for a signin' at Mardel's)

Transcript snip from Glenn Beck's radio show:

CO-HOST: How would you handle a situation like the one that just developed in North Korea?

PALIN: But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies. We're bound to by treaty—

CO-HOST: South Korean.

PALIN: Eh, Yeah. And we're also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes.

Palin is merely one of the most florid examples of Aggressive Stupidity Syndrome (ASS), developed and promulgated by the GOP.

The big money Republicans have found that the values voter-type Republicans are easy to manipulate. If their "values" are affirmed, they can be sold an ever-degrading quality of life. The big boys get richer, of course.

Paradoxically, and tragically (or comically, depending on your point of view,) the low-enders are successfully encouraged to identify with the interests of the money men. Radio blowhards keep them topped up on these toxic ideas.

Someday, a mass Darwin Award will be in order (posthumous.)
