Following yesterday’s segment, CNN’s Internet correspondent Abbi Tatton analyzes the blogosphere’s reaction to news that Sen. Ted Stevens was indeed the “secret hold Senator”. Once again, Porkbusters gets a mention for being on top of the story.

Seems logical that the major proponent of Alaska’s “bridge to nowhere” would end up being the culprit here.

Great sleuthing!

Too much of this “Information on a need to know, and you don’t need to know” CRAP has gone too long in Congress.

It’s time to yank these idiots out of office.

Starting with Stevens and Byrd!

And there’s Allah thinking nobody reads the blogs, just because Snakes on a Plane tanked.

Silly, silly god.

Trying to decide which exaltation is best:

All your pork are belong to us! pwned

Stevens, it’s what’s for dinner!

OR

Stevens, the other white meat!

How about those TUBES now, Porky!!

I don’t know if this makes a difference, but according to his Wikipedia page, he’s a member of the “moderate” Republican gathering called the Republican Main Street Partnership, which may be a group of RINOs. No surprise there, it seems.

Heh, methinks porky just got tubed from behind.

Pity that the beautiful state of Alaska is represented by Mr. Attempted Hidden Pork for another 2 years.

Glorious that his attempt has backfired and now, hopefully, the initiative will be voted into law, for all citizents to view and judge. He’s probably hated by a few other senators who’d have liked to vote against it – no moore now!

MKH – “there’s something in it for me, if only AP wold quit flirting with that (liberal) KP”…

I think that Stevens discounts bloggers way too much.

“Senator Stevens has always preferred to handle this at the staff level or member-to-member,” said Mr. Saunders [a Stevens spokesman], referring to the hold. “He doesn’t like running to the blogosphere or the media.”

Translation: Mr. Stevens doesn’t like running away from the blogosphere, or the media. Too bad for you, Porky!
