Porkapalooza On Steroids: Listeners Prove Jim Wrong – Update

OK … you were right and I didn’t think it was possible. Today’s poll question … do you think the Senate Democrats will kill, cut, or add more pork to the porkapalooza, should not have been a hard one since I wrote the poll question but I admit I was wrong. I thought the answer clearly would be that they would cut or at the very least hold fast … but no. By an overwhelming majority you voted … for option 3 … that the Democrat Senators would add more pork.

Watch the video and try not to blow your stack. Let me just apologize in advance.


Update: RVO reader Nick I think nails this pretty well … although Nick … I am sticking with Porkapalooza.

Two things. To add to the regal view of our Congress I would like to refer to the boondoggle that is tthe “stimulus’ as: PORKUS MAXIMUS. Also, here’s a great quote from Mark Twain apropos of our situation : “It probably could be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.” 1871

    This so-called stimulus package has more pork than a pig farm!

    My big question is how do these thieves keep getting elected?  They have proven once again that they don't care about fixing anything.  They just want to pad their re-election bids with money for their friends.

    If it looks like a pig, smells like a pig, and gains weight like a pig, it must be a Democrat "stimulus" bill!

    And we aren't talking proscuitto, we are talking fatback: emphasis on the lard.

    Maybe a new video: "congressmen gone hog wild!"
