A foolish consistency …

… never bothered a conservative demanding more pork for his district.

Former Democrat Parker Griffith wants smaller government – and more Defense and NASA pork for his district.

On him, the GOP label looks good.

One thought on “A foolish consistency …”

  1. Tangential to your post, but one good way of dealing with the GOP might be to reject, without exception, all earmarks proposed by any congressional Republican (incl. Lieberman). Show the people of red states/districts that there is a price to be paid for harming the Republic by voting Republican in sufficient numbers to send one to Washington.
