McCain Outs Little Porky Projects

Posted by ginnypub on February 28, 2009

“I am gonna tweet the TOP TEN PORKIEST PROJECTS in the Omnibus Spending bill the Congress is about to pass,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., wrote on his Twitter page yesterday.

“#10. $1.7M “for a honey bee factory” in Weslaco, TX
“#9. $475,000 to build a parking garage in Provo City, Utah
“#8. $200,000 “tattoo removal violence outreach program to could help gang members or others shed visible signs of their past.”
“#7. $300,000 for the Montana World Trade Center
“#6. $1 million for mormon cricket control in Utah
“#5. $650,000 for beaver management in North Carolina and Mississippi”
“#4. $2.1 million for the Center for Grape Genetics in New York
“#3. $332,000 for the design and construction of a school sidewalk in Franklin, Texas
“#2. $2 million ‘for the promotion of astronomy’ in Hawaii –
“#1. $1.7 million for pig odor research in Iowa”

All sound like “shovel-ready” projects to me, Sen. McCain.

    that’s a typical liberal response, by all means avoid the subject at hand and go to attack mode

    what’s that web site number again? Senator Kerry?

    McCain knows how to tweet? I thought he didn’t even know how to email. Must be an aide helping out.
