Bob Byrd delivered a 2,079-word speech in defense of earmarks, just in time for the end of the earmarks era. A Washington source said, “Senator Reid has agreed to negotiate with Senator Gregg about the Gregg Amendment. Hopefully there will be enough pressure to force everybody involved to allow a straight up or down vote on the earmark reform amendment.”

Just remember, Byrd delivered the last filibuster before the 1964 Civil Rights Act was passed. Mr. Timing.

Instapundit, meanwhile, reported the opposite. I’ll go with my source: Deal in the works. No way Dems are this stupid. Never underestimate!

I am glad there are other bloggers like Durham-in-Wonderland to deal with Duke’s “Group of 88″ professors who still insist the lacrosse players are guilty. The group is down to 87. Maybe Professor Tawana Brawley can be recruited to be No. 88.

Hat tip: Instapundit.
