John McCain has found some pork in (yet!) another bill, and Steve Benen writes:
In 2009, for example, McCain used Twitter to highlight what he considered “the top 10 pork barrel projects” in the Recovery Act, which McCain described as his idea of “a lot of fun.” Some cursory research found that most of McCain’s examples weren’t wasteful at all. [...] In 2010, McCain did it again, releasing another list of wasteful projects, and once more McCain’s examples fell apart.
Hilariously, Alex Pareene says that John McCain is once again proving to everyone how essentially shallow he is as a politician:
But instead of developing any sort of larger objection to the bill’s priorities or major components — something that would require a coherent philosophy of government — McCain just decided to single out the things in the bill that sound the silliest, if you are a cranky old man who doesn’t like to have to think about stuff too hard.
