Earmark update

Following up on this story, the latest rumor is the real Mr. Bridge to NoWhere, Ted Stevens (R-AK), put the anonymous hold on the porkbuster bill currently stalled in the Senate. How unsurprising. Smart money has been on him right along.

In a related development, Jay Rosen of the brainy journalism blog Press Think has a new citizen journalism project in the works. That's somehow related to a project that is tracking down the pork barrel earmarks at the receiving end. The first contributor unearthed a lobbyist connection to a large award made to a glaucoma foundation that smacks of payola. It looks like a good project for anyone with the time and inclination to do investigative work.

And the surprise is, that it was a Republican. The modern day GOP's hypocrisy literally knows no bounds.

Yeah, he's a piece of work all right. Oddly, you have to give the right wingers some credit for exposing him. They really got the ball rolling with this Porkbusters project.
