INDEED: Congress Spending Vote Stirs Earmark Debate.

UPDATE: Even Maureen Dowd is commenting: “In one of his disturbing spells of passivity, President Obama decided not to fight Congress and live up to his own no-earmark pledge from the campaign. He’s been lecturing us on the need to prune away frills while the economy fizzles. He was slated to make a speech on ‘wasteful spending’ on Wednesday. . . .Team Obama sounds hollow, chanting that ‘the status quo is not acceptable,’ even while conceding that the president is accepting the status quo by signing a budget festooned with pork.”
