Pork: The Unsatisfying Other White Meat

If pork's so wonderful, if it can buy votes, how come so many vulnerable Republicans on the appropriations committees lost?

From "some random dude:"

A majority of vulnerable GOP appropriators in both the House and Senate lost (4/7 in the House and 2/2 in the Senate). That raises an interesting question for those who favor pork for its alleged ability to swing elections: If pork canít even deliver close elections, then whatís the point?

House:

-Sherwood, vice-chairman of Foreign Operations appropriations subcommittee: (LOST)

-Taylor, chairman of Interior appropriations subcommittee: (LOST)

-Northrup: (LOST)

-Sweeney, vice-chairman of Treasury-Transportation-HUD appropriations subcommittee: (LOST)

-Doolittle: (WON)

-Kirk: (WON)

-Walsh: (WON)

Senate:

-Burns (LOST)

-DeWine (LOST)
