Somebody forgot to tell the Rolling Stone editors:

[quote]Also, Obama and 81 other senators opposed an amendment in 2005 to strike the infamous $231 million �??Bridge to Nowhere�?? earmark for Alaska and redirect that funding to help with rebuilding New Orleans.

The Senate rarely backs efforts to strike another member�??s pet projects.[/quote]

But Palin voted to kill it:

Double standards are fun!

Obama sucks. But we all knew that. No one ever thought HE was a fiscally-conservative reformer committed to combatting pork.

Not sure what you’re implying. But if you’re talkiing about having to deal with ultra liberals at NYU or something, it could be worse. You could be at UCLA.

Heh John Corzine was rallying for Obama in front of a Rutgers dining hall =/

The way he loves the pork, it makes the Muslim argument against him ridiculous.

Cornell is as liberal as they come. Trust me when I say everyone here thinks he’s going to reduce spending and cut their taxes while simultaneously giving all the poor people more benefits. How will he do this? By taxing those evil rich scum that we’re all here to one day attempt to become…

No wonder so many Cornellians end up as hippies who never leave Ithica -_-
