As we illustrated pretty clearly in this afternoon’s video, Sarah Palin is about as a big a lying fraud as you can be on the issue of ‘earmark reform’. But when we were researching her record on earmarks yesterday afternoon, I have to confess it didn’t occur to us to look beneath the ‘toplines’ and find out just what all of her requested earmarks were for.
Well, now we have some examples. $2 million to study crab mating habits; half a million to study recreational halibut fishing; $3.2 million on seal DNA. Even more good stuff here.
