Bachmann is against earmarks, except as to her district

This revelation comes to you courtesy of a St. Cloud Times story on her withdrawing two transportation-related earmark requests:

Bachmann has been a vocal critic of the earmark process. But after requesting the transportation bill projects last year, she acknowledged to local officials she was making an exception to her no-earmark stance.

Bachmann spokeswoman Rachel Horn now says the “high-priority project requests” Bachmann made weren’t “in the same category” as an earmark request.

Definitions of an earmark vary, but House rules also define what Bachmann submitted last year as an earmark request, says a nonpartisan earmark watchdog group.

She thinks her constituents are stupid, apparently.
