By any other name...
Apparently a Mea Culpa is in order. In my venting below, I said-
"Heh, at the moment, we can't even get funding FOR MY HUSBAND and the men who are IN Iraq without them putting in all kinds of strings and loading the bill with enough pork to feed a small country."
Since I'm still catching up on my reading I wasn't aware I had misspoke here. Apparently it's not 'pork' if the Democrats are doing it, it's 'pet projects'.
I'll try harder to keep up with the newest media PC jargon in the future. ;)
EDIT- And, as I read further back in the Instapundit archives, I found this gem- PORKBUSTERS UPDATE-
The federal agency that tracked pork-barrel spending during the 12 years of the Republican congressional majority has discontinued the practice since Democrats took power, riling lawmakers suspicious of the timing and concerned about the pace of fat being added to bills.
