If at first you don't succeed...

If at first you don't succeed, throw some pork in.

"Some of those additions have been assailed by spending watchdogs as "pork," like the $6 million for the makers of kids' wooden arrows, according to a summary of the bill released by the Senate Finance Committee.

Other goodies intended to attract the votes of individual members of Congress include $192 million for the rum producers of Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands, $128 million for car racing tracks, $33 million for corporations operating in American Samoa, and $10 million for small film and television productions."

WTF!?!?! We're not bailing out Puerto Rican rum producers right now. Focus!!!
