Yammer on. Nobody's listening.
Except maybe Madam Virginia Foxx, channeling a 15-year-old autograph hound crazy in love.
Foxx had her press release ready to go. Allow us to translate what Madam Teapot had to say:
My fellow Americans, until the Republicans took over Congress and George W. Bush took over the White House, most Americans did not know what an "earmark" was. Now I'm proud to say, the public is educated, having watched the Jack Abramoff and Duke Cunningham scandals evolve and a hundred other pay-to-play moments in recent history, and I know you'll appreciate our efforts to change things now that the dastardly Democrats are in control. At least appreciate our effort to sound pious.
