Harry Reid Ruined My Day
The senate tried to pass a last minute, $1.2 trillion, 1,924 page spending bill last night. The bill had 6,630 earmarks totalling $8 billion. Even dead senators got earmarks – $8 Million for the Edward Kennedy institute and $10 million for the John Murtha Foundation! The Wall Street Journal called it “The 111th Congress’s Final Insult“. A cartoonist can’t ask for much more than that. Then, just as a 40 hour reading of the bill was about to begin, Harry Reid pulled the plug and spoiled all the fun. He ruined 3 days worth of cartoons. I think I’ll call my congressman.
