John McCain Ridicules Earmarks for DNA Research. Sarah Palin Championed It. Whoopsie Doodle. Um, Hey, Great Steak! Pass the Salt, John.

“My friends, we spent $3 million of your money to study the DNA of bears in Montana! Now, I don’t know if that was a paternity issue or a criminal issue, but the point is it was 3 million of your money. It was your money. And you know, we laugh about it, but we cry — and we should cry” — John McCain, August 16, 2008

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s earmark request this year for money to study the DNA of sea lions: $3.2 million. Requested from the Federal government: $3.16 million. From the Alaska state government: $40 thousand.

Oooh. That’ll leave a mark.

And hey — did you know that John McCain actually voted for the DNA research on bears? Do you think he forgot?

Memries may be beautiful and yet
What’s too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So its the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were,
The way we werrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre…

[Tip o' the pen to TPM Muckraker]
