Make Pork Not War says Donkey Kongress

That appears to be the message of the Democrat-Controlled US Congress. Was this the platform that the Donkey Kongress was voted in on, a polymorphous yet intractable opposition to winning the Global Counterjihad combined with racing to the trough for more pork to feed the furnaces of corruption? If I had believed Nancy Pelosi for even a second, I would have thought this was going to be the most ethical congress ever!

The Supplemental Iraq Funding/Pork and Minimum Wage Bill (not the official name), which was split into two separately voted upon bills, passed. Both halves passed.

Iraq funding supplemental passed 280:142.
Pork and raising Minimum Wage passed 348:73.

Pork is more popular in Congress than funding the war and supporting the troops! Congress ought to love this giant porker (over 9 feet from snout to tail and weighing over 1000 pounds). Maybe the Donkey Kongress will pay $30 billion of your money and mine for it, and make small businesses pay even more to their entry level hires.

“Most ethical congress ever,” my eye!
