From James Taranto's column in the WSJ:
See if you can spot the new euphemism in this Associated Press report on the new $1.1 trillion budget bill (yes, that's trillion with 1,000 B's):
The measure combines $447 billion in operating budgets with about $650 billion in mandatory payments for federal benefit programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. It wraps together six individual spending bills and also contains more than 5,000 back-home projects sought by lawmakers in both parties.
Seems to us that back when the Republicans controlled Congress, "back-home projects" were called "earmarks" or "pork."
It will be only a matter of time before the Virginian Pilot catches on.
