Speaker Pelosi, Leader Murtha and Chairman Moran

Yet one more reason to pray that the GOP can maintain a majority in the House of Representatives:
If Democrats win back control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November, U.S. Rep. Jim Moran said he would use his position in the majority to help funnel more funds to his Northern Virginia district.

Moran, D-8th, told those attending the Arlington County Democratic Committee's annual Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner on June 9 that while he in theory might oppose the fiscal irresponsibility of “earmarks” - funneling money to projects in a member of Congress's district - he understands the value they have to constituents.

“When I become chairman [of a House appropriations subcommittee], I'm going to earmark the shit out of it,” Moran buoyantly told a crowd of 450 attending the event.

I think Wayne and Garth said it best:
Wayne: I smell bacon. Do you smell bacon?

Garth: I definitely smell a pork product of some sort.

What a classy group.
