Vermont Pork and Homeland Security
Dave Friedman and A Constrained Vision point out that Vermont’s King of Pork, Patrick Leahy, wants to turn the Homeland Security budget into just one more porkfest. That Homeland Security is too important for this seems like a no-brainer.
My question is why a Republican Congress and Republican President should consider sending any pork to Vermont to help reelect a Democrat, a turncoat “Independent” and a Socialist “Independent”? Next time Leahy comes calling for pork of any sort, I think Dick Cheney knows the words to use.
