Nancy Pelosi's NewSpeak

Give credit where credit is due. Nancy Pelosi has managed to keep on of the promises she made during the 2006 election.

In the 2006 campaign, the Democrats promised earmark reform. They've succeeded - sort of, by changing the language. According to Nancy Pelosi, there are no more earmarks, only "legislatively directed spending requests."

I am not making this up.

It certainly is all about symantics. Wish most things in life were that easy to figure out.
