What's good for the Coop should be good for the Blackburn

The Nashville Scene's Jeff Woods saluted U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Nashville) for swearing-off earmarks (i.e., pork barrel spending):

"Congressman Jim Cooper has taken a principled stand against those much-maligned congressional earmarks—that is, federal spending earmarked for home-district pork-barrel projects—and he’s refusing to ask for any for Nashville in the next budget."

'Bout the same time Rep. Cooper announced that he was taking a principled anti-earmark stand, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Williamson County) said she was gonna do the same. (Hell, I'm not so sure that Marsha, Marsha, Marsha Blackburn didn't swear-off pork 'fore Jim "No Upper Lip" Cooper did.)

Reckon why the Nashville Scene praised Jim Cooper and didn't praise Marsha Blackburn ... ?

Methinks it has something to do with the fact that "alternative" media outlets like the Nashville Scene are legally prohibited from praising Republicans. Indeed.
