Defending the Indefensible

George Allen comes out in favor of congressional earmarks...what you call pork:

"Every single earmark I've gotten, I'm proud of," Allen told more than 300 people gathered for a town hall meeting at Chesterfield County's Clover Hill High School.

Either Allen is a contrarian or he's been hitting the congressional Kool Aid a bit hard.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle
