Spend Like Drunken Democrats

Presidential hopeful John McCain tried unsuccessfully to implement a one-year moratorium on earmarks. Surprisingly, the other two Presidential hopefuls from the Democrats voted along with him. So did Joe Lieberman (I-CT), Russ Feingold (D-WA), Evan Bayh (D-IN), Claire McCaskill (D-MO). If all the Republicans had voted with him, it would have carried. Sadly, 26 Republicans like their pork too much to sign on. Here's the complete tally:
