United for Pork, One More Time

Once again, Virginia's House delegation has made the toughest of choices, deciding to stand together in true, bipartisan fashion in support of pork.

Via Andrew, who has collected the roll call votes, we can see that whether it's a retail market, an arts council or a tourism development initiative, Virginia's best and brightest can be counted on to bite the bullet, weather the storm, bet the ranch, go the extra mile and many other cliches, so long as the federal dollars keep flowing.

"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

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
