Alaska's Wild Kingdom Of Earmarks Documented (VIDEO)

This little bit of viral videography contains perhaps one too many pop-cultural references than are actually necessary, but it gets its point across effectively: that under the stewardship of Sarah Palin, the state of Alaska requested all sorts of kooky earmarks, akin to McCain's famous "bear DNA" bete noire. At the same time, I'm currently of the mind to overlook Palin's decision to spend taxpayer money on crab mating studies. They did a bit on crab mating on The Daily Show tonight, and what can I tell you? Crab porn is SO HOT RIGHT NOW.
