Quotational Therapy: Part 103 -- Democrats & Earmarking.

Jim Moran Reveals His Cards A Little Too Early: Pork-

Democrats are giving us plenty of clues (and then some) regarding their plans, in the event that they regain the House of Representatives. The latest, from the would-be Appropriations Chairman, Jim Moran:

The money quote:

“When I become chairman [of a House appropriations subcommittee], I'm going to earmark the s#1t out of it."

And more context:

If Democrats win back control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November, U.S. Rep. Jim Moran said he would use his position in the majority to help funnel more funds to his Northern Virginia district.

Moran, D-8th, told those attending the Arlington County Democratic Committee's annual Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner on June 9 that while he in theory might oppose the fiscal irresponsibility of “earmarks” - funneling money to projects in a member of Congress's district - he understands the value they have to constituents.

“When I become chairman [of a House appropriations subcommittee], I'm going to earmark the s#1t out of it,” Moran buoyantly told a crowd of 450 attending the event.

Colorful language and campaign hyperbole aside, Moran has a lot to gain if Democrats topple the GOP's 12-year control of the House. His relative seniority of eight terms would make him a powerful member of any Democratic majority.

Moran is a prime example of everything that is wrong with politics today, particularly the Democratic Party. If Republicans in swing districts stay home to teach Congressional Republicans a lesson, the joke will be on voters.
