McCain introduced earmark reform in the Senate, and look who the Republicans are who opposed it:
Nine Republicans voted with Democrats against Mr. McCain’s amendment: Senators Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Robert Bennett of Utah, Christopher Bond of Missouri, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Richard Shelby of Alabama, Olympia Snowe of Maine and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. More here. (Via Tennessee Free)
It gores my goat that I’m going to have to help Specter out in 2010, in my capacity as EVC, because he’s likely to carry an NRA endorsement.Â But given that NRA stays out of primary fights, I will absolutely back any actual Republican who wants to run against Specter in the primary.Â Seriously, we might as well have a Democrat.Â First the stimulus, now this.
