Lend Me Your Earmarks: The Truth Behind the Hoopla

It's so nice to have an alternative to the Republican spin-machine-o-lies. It's also amazing just how truly deceptive they have become over the years. Only a compliant, unquestioning press could have allowed these carnival barkers the ability to gain even an ounce of credibility.

Keith Olbermann takes a look at the phony Republican outrage (are you listening Russ Feingold?), and Frederica Freyberg of WPT's Here and Now gets the scoop from Rep. David Obey.

According to Obey, "I must say I get a kick out of some of the Republican critics who privately squawk at me because we have cut earmarks to the bone, and then publicly cry crocodile tears about them. It's enough to give hypocrisy a bad name."
