Northwest Pork Fish Takes to the air

A local nonprofit agency, the Alaska Fisheries Marketing Board, gave Alaska Airlines a $500,000 grant to paint the jet (like a king salmon). The money came out of about $29 million in federal funding U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska and his congressional colleagues have appropriated to the marketing board, created in 2003, to promote and enhance the value of Alaska seafood. The senator's son, state Sen. Ben Stevens, is chairman of the agency's board of directors.

What's the word I'm looking for to describe these people?

I know: Politicians! Disgusting.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) tried to block the appropriation for Ted "Crybaby" Stevens's "bridge to nowhere" but only got 15 votes.

Stevens might as well just join the Democratic Party. I'm sure he'd feel right at home.

How does a Coburn-Tancredo 2008 ticket sound?
