No More Cone of Silence for Intelligence Earmarks

Cone of SilencePoor Jim Gibbons wouldn’t know what to do if he were still in the House of Representatives.

You see, those little secret earmarks that got Gibbers and eTreppid in the Wall Street Journal last year, and which are the subject of that on-going FBI bribery investigation, are, according to the Hill, no more.
