The Club for Growth Blog offers “kudos to the 9 Republicans who voted NO.” Kudos to the 2 Democrats, also. Almost makes up for McCain-Feingold. Almost.

The way these line up, I wonder if perhaps South Carolina, Texas, Arizona, Wisconsin and New Hampshire just got left out of the pork fest for some reason.
