You would think that the Republicans got the hint after the November 2nd elections, but it looks like the Republicans are braindead when it comes to the voter’s ire.  In fact, while there are over 6,000 earmarks in the latest $1.1 trillion dollar omnibus bill, the two leaders in earmark request are the two Mississippi Republican Senators!  Thad Cochran requested 230 earmarks and Roger Wicker requested 199 total earmarks!  The other Republican porkers included (with the number of earmark requests):
