I was going to put a blog post together on this issue, but Dan Spencer at Redstate has done so, and with links to keep you busy for quite some time.

Among his list of things Palin has done on the earmark front, and contrasted with Obama:

  • She ordered her administration to cut the number of earmarks (including the “Bridge to Nowhere”).
  • He consistently supported said bridge, even refusing to redirect funds for it to Katrina victims.
  • She significantly reduced the number and dollar value of earmarks to the state of Alaska.
  • She vetoed nearly $500 million in government spending over 2 years
  • He has requested nearly $1 billion in earmarks over 3 years.
