More Partisan Attacks On Nancy Pelosi Courtesy Of FOX News

fox-morgan.jpg"Fair and balanced" strikes again. Melanie Morgan -- who seriously needs to lay off the botox -- attacks Nancy Pelosi's earmarking while at the same time ignoring much more egregious examples perpetrated by GOP congressmen. Examining Congress' dirty little secret is of course fair game but when you devote an entire segment to Nancy Pelosi rather than the abhorrent practice in general, can it be interpreted as anything other than a partisan hit-piece? Just take a look at the 'ridiculous' appropriations Pelosi has brought home for her district: I mean, funding for a neurology center? C'mon!

I think it goes without saying that the whole use of earmarks -- numbering more than 16,000 at a cost of $70 bln in 2005 alone -- is an absolute digrace. But making it seem as if Pelosi is somehow responsible or unique is just plain dishonest -- especially when she has proposed ending anonymous earmarking which will instantaneously promote accountability. If FOX is pulling this crap before the 110th Congress is even seated, can you even imagine what's in store for the next two years?
