Jim Oberstar Backed Into Newly-Illuminated Corner

See how he weasels and slithers as he slips an earmark through while House rules are in suspension (essentially off the record), and not one week after the House adopted rules on earmark transparancy.

Oberstar represents a district that shrinks in economic significance every day. For him and his district, pork barrel spending IS the economy. You just know this guy parrots the DNC mantra about the big-spending Republicans, which, unfortunately is mostly true.

Watch the whole thing to see how hair splitting and the tap dancing is done by a 32-year veteran of the Washington DC game. Thanks to Rep. Flake of Arizone for calling this fool out.
