$391 Million of Pork

Nice job, Jim. Now, can one of our neocon friends explain why Sen. McConnell, a conservative Republican, snags $391M, while Rep. Boehner, a conservative Republican, snags $0? The meaning of "conservative" changes abruptly just by crossing the river? More likely, "conservative" is meaningless camouflage for whatever it takes to get re-elected.

Knowing full well that his voting base won't know the difference, McConnell will announce a reform effort that will ban all earrings from future spending bills. Hear Hear!!

i miss conservative republicans. :(

we need more boehners and schmidts. maybe then, i will be more proud to claim i am a republican.

but in all fairness, nancy pelosi managed to spend 28 billion dollars in pork on one day just to buy votes for a non-binding resolution. it's really hard to trash big spending republicans when democrats are 10 times worse.

It is really easy for our left leaning liberal cartoonist. ("to trash big spending republicans when democrats are 10 times worse.")

Great cartoon, one of many for Mr. Borgman. A couple suggestions for a follow-on: Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi for Queen of Earmarks, and Senator Reid for the Czar of earmarks (the dictator who redfines earmarks to suit his politics).

nothing tops $100 billion "for the war"; just add that phrase to the end of everything and you can get away with anything, just like the south says, bless her heart (it's so natural!)
