The Earmark Air Force runs another successful mission

That spending bill the Feds passed last night? The one the Democrats caved on? Well, not entirely. Their greed once again got the better of their "principles."

3500 pages in the bill. 9000 earmarks. 300 of them airdropped.

More here, from the Republican Study Committee.

I'm sure some of this was from, and for, GOP members. However, they aren't the ones who've voted 40 or 50 times to tie funding to Iraq withdrawal, only to back down under cover of an avalanche of pork. The GOP porkers didn't cave. They did business as usual, enabled by the Democrat majority.
