Appropriators Beware: Primaries Spell Defeat for Some

Longtime Rep. Bob Inglis of South Carolina, who is not an appropriator, was overwhelmingly defeated too, but only after he criticized viewers of TV-host Glenn Beck's.

The anecdotal theme will be tested again next week when Sen. Lisa Murkowski faces the Republican primary in Alaska. She is favored but Alaska native Sarah Palin, who has a long and turbulent electoral relationship with Murkowski and her father, Frank, has endorsed the challenger.

So many appropriators leaving or being thrown out of Congress leads us to a plug for the piece we ran earlier this summer: "Is this the end of pork barrel politics?"
