Byrd Confirms (and Drops) Secret Pork Blockage
Mmm, "secret pork blockage."
Robert "Exalted Cyclops" Byrd was indeed the Dem senator who had a "secret hold" on S. 2590. His excuse is so pathetic and insulting that we don't even want to quote the stinking thing. Just go read it at TPM Muckraker. (And enjoy the most Emperor Palpatine-esque photo of Byrd ever.)
"Tubes" Stevens now appears to be the only senator blocking the bill. Although we still haven't heard a firm denial from Harry Reid.
We fingered both Byrd and Stevens a whole week ago. (Yuck - Ed.)
