McCain goes nuclear on Obama over earmarks: “So much for the promise of change”

Speaking of guys wooed by Obama who haven’t rolled over the way we expected, here’s Maverick rubbing The One’s face in his pet issue last night. Normally I think this subject’s a political loser, but Obama’s hypocrisy about it is so egregious and public weariness of nonstop spending such fertile ground for a comeback that it can only help to remind them how much crap their money’s buying this time around. Starts slow, but stick with it. Things pick up around 3:00.
McCain’s amendment calling for the spending bill’s 9,000 earmarks to be stripped out was rejected today, predictably enough. And predictably enough, among the eight Republicans voting no were … Collins, Snowe, and Specter. Click the image to watch.
