On the campaign trail, one of the earmarks that John McCain often made fun of was a request from Montana to study the DNA of bears. McCain would quip “I don’t know if that was a paternity issue or a criminal issue.”
But if you look in Palin’s earmark requests for the upcoming year, you will find a request to study the DNA of harbor seals. Does McCain think the paternity of seals is more important, or does he just harbor a grudge against bears?
Just to make this even more hypocritical, Palin also requested money for a study of the mating habits of crabs. And I thought that Palin opposed sex education!
