Republican senator, Lindsey Graham, threw a fit and threatened to hold up nominations because an earmark he supported got cut in the recent federal budget deal. This is funny on a couple of levels. First, a Lindsey Graham fit is always funny. Second, in his fit throwing, he let it slip that he, at least, believes that gov't can create private sector jobs. Well, doesn't that go against what the GOP is trying to sell - that gov't doesn't create jobs? Then, of course, there's the whole earmark hypocrisy thing going on here.
