Hypocrite of the Day

Rep. Sue Myrick managed to get tens of millions of $$ in earmarks into the omnibus spending bill just passed by the U.S. House, and then piously turned around and voted against it, like most of her Republican brethren and sistren.

Most of the Myrick earmarks -- some $20 million -- will go to expand Charlotte's light-rail system.

It's one thing to oppose spending on principle. It's quite another thing to lard up a bill with stuff your constituents will enjoy while knowing the bill will surely pass without your support.

It's a whole new benchmark in hypocrisy!
