Democrats To Get Rid Of Pork Spending???

I just read this article about how Democrats are going to get rid of "earmarks" and/or "pork barrel" spending. No really I'm not joking. Here it is. It has brought me out of hibernation to comment. The classic quotes were from the KKK Grand Wizard himself Robert Byrd...

"There will be no congressional earmarks," the Senator from West Virginia said

Robert Byrd saying he's quitting earmarks is like a crack whore saying they're quitting drugs or an alcoholic saying they're going on the wagon. It just isn't going to happen. It will be business as usual from the get go next year you watch. The only difference is that this time it will be the Democrats getting all the credit for overspending our money. We(Republicans) got so good at it that we wanted to take a break and give the other side a chance to prove that they haven't missed a beat since they controlled everything.
