A group that tracks earmarks is reporting that 11 Bart Stupak Democrats have requested more than $3.4 billion in earmarks for 2011. Stupak himself requested more than $578 million in earmarks. Of the eight members whose 2010 earmarks requests were available for comparison, five requested more than they did a year ago: Rep. Jerry Costello (D-Ill.) Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper (D-Pa.) Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) Brad Ellsworth (D-Ind.) and Rep. Charles Wilson (D-Ohio).
Personally, I doubt any of these lawmakers flipped because of the earmarks — though given the Cornhusker Kickback and the Louisiana Purchase, you can never rule it out — but their loyalty to their party’s leadership rather than their pro-life views may yet be rewarded.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
