WaPo is doing another hit piece on earmarks and is shocked to report that majority leaders get more of what they want.

I've always contended that one person earmark is another persons key important legislation. I certainly believe that a greater degree of transparency and accountability is needed in earmark oversight. But earmarks have taken on the patina of a dirty word when in fact they often are key parts of the representative legislative function.
