Fighting pork, by the numbers

The Club for Growth has been all over the recent heroic and quixotic efforts of a handful of senators to roll back a few pork projects for the benefit of Katrina victims.

By their count, there have been 13,997 pork projects in federal spending bills for FY 2005. The Senate has shown itself unwilling to repeal two (2) of them. That's 0.0142887762 percent.

It's enough to make one despair. Maybe it helps to be a "glass half full" kind of person.
