I (mostly) avoid snide remarks about Rush Limbaugh.
But Sean Hannity's 9000 earmarks is just too easy a target!
H.R. 1 (the "stimulus bill") runs to 647 pages.
9000 earmarks? That's just shy of 14 earmarks per page.
It should be pretty easy for Hannity to pull up the bill, pick a couple of pages at random, and find at least ONE earmark.
Does he do this? No.
Rather, he waves a sheaf of papers & states, "I have a list of... part of the 9000 earmarks." He offers to read 'em (if we'd like).
Hmmm... where have I heard this before? Oh, yeah!
"In my hands I have a list of 205 members of the State Department that are Communists."You'd think waving a sheaf of papers around & saying, "I have a list...", would be avoided by TV "journalists" - even on Fox.
