And the #1 Dumbest Earmark According to John McCain…

One of the many reasons I hate earmark battles is they invariably require some politico to pull out examples of particularly “outrageous” ones. And usually about 80% of them are actually pretty important things that are just not important in a way a lay person would understand without, you know, stopping and thinking about it for more than 11 seconds. If your garden variety Republican still can’t get past the “How can there be global warming – look outside, it’s a snowstorm!” level of scientific awareness, I don’t really trust them as judges of obscure scientific projects in a vacuum.

Anyway, from this article, H/T Weigel.
