"Senator in Tennis Shoes" Patty Murray Threatens Those Who Would Cut Pork

Says "we on the Appropriations Committee will take a 'long, hard look' at any projects in your state" for any who vote for anti-pork amendments.

I seem to remember a large stink about threats/promises made in the context of passing Bush's (bad) drug-prescription bill.

Think the media will likewise turn Patty Murray's naked, publicly-stated threat into a firestorm?

I don't.

Now, we conservatives have been hard on Republicans who won't restrain porkbarrel spending, and rightly so. But the MSM has blamed the runaway spending on Republicans, almost alone. Anyone think they'll take notice that a Democrat is making threats against those who would cut pork spending?

Again-- just me, but I don't.

Traffic Non-Santa has more. Anti-pork amendments are being voted down left and right. I can't wait for the full roll call.
