Senate Conservatives Cut Some Pork

It's no secret that I don't like John McCain. However, I've got to say, he and Tom Colburn are one-up after cutting $15 million dollars of waste out of a funding bill for Katrina relief and the Iraq war.

What was the potential waste for? A seafood promotion; no kidding. $15 million dollars for an ad campaign telling you to eat fish 'cause it's healthy.

One of the funniest and most sensible things Sen. McCain has said in a long time:

"Charlie the Tuna and the Chicken of the Sea mermaid are doing their job just fine without any help of the federal government," said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. "Let me save the American taxpayers $15 million right now by telling all Americans now to eat seafood. Eat seafood. It's good for you."
