One Democrat Who'll Vote Against the Iraq Bill

Looks like Patrick Murphy hasn't read the Iraq supplemental yet. He says there's no pork in it, after having campaigned against pork-barrel spending:

On Tuesday, Murphy, a Democrat who represents Bucks County and small parts of Montgomery County and Philadelphia, said critics of the supplemental bill were “playing politics with our troops.”

During his congressional campaign last year Murphy frequently criticized then-Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick for voting for “pork barrel spending” such as $500,000 for a teapot museum in North Carolina and $1 million for an aquarium in Connecticut that was tacked on to mammoth spending bills.

I'm sure once he reads this, he'll change his mind.
