It seems that, according to a House Appropriations Committee staf member, Alaska got $506 per capita in "earmarks" in 2008, vs. the national average of $51. Gov. Who?'s town of Wasilla got $1,000 per capita in 2002 while she was part-time mayor, or 20 times the national average for "earmarks" - - what St. John McOinkoink calls "pork barrel spending."
(note: love the Who? style glasses on the porker)
