It'll be interesting to see how the this forum deal with this, since many of them bought into, as Inhofe calls it, the "demogoguery." I've always been for earmarks and never bought into the right-wing demagoguery. Many earmarks are for really good projects that could not otherwise get seed money or necessary funding. Nice to see the Republicans exposing their hypocrisy yet again, with arch-conservatives like Inhofe suddenly being pro-earmark. ThinkProgress Home Page Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) â€” whom National Journal ranked as the most conservative senator in 2009 â€” has gone even further, declaring â€śan all-out war within the Senate GOP conference next week to defeat an earmark moratorium.â€ť Inhofe has said he will take to the Senate floor Monday to deliver a â€śpretty strong statementâ€ť against the ban, and to call out DeMint for supporting earmarks before he was against them. .... In an interview with conservative radio host Ed Morrissey yesterday, Inhofe said people like DeMint who oppose earmarks are â€śbrainwashed,â€ť adding that if his fellow senators vote to ban earmarks they are voting to â€śtrash the constitution and reject their oath of officeâ€ť: INHOFE: Theyâ€™ve been demagoguing this whole thing on earmarks, but youâ€™ll never convince the American people of it because they are so thoroughly brainwashed. You say earmark, they say, oh, earmarks are bad. But then when they stop and define the earmarks, then they think, that is what the Constitution â€” that is what James Madison said we are supposed to be doing in the House and the Senate.
