Mike Pence's staff sends along an excerpt from Congressman Pence's floor speech on the Democrat emergency funding bill for Iraq:

"Here are some examples of what the Democrats consider 'urgent' needs that require 'prompt action: '

-- $25 million for payments to spinach producers
-- $120 million to the shrimp industry
-- $74 million for peanut storage
-- $5 million for shellfish, oyster and clam producers

"Spinach, shrimp, peanuts and shellfish? That's not a war funding bill, that's the salad bar at Denny's."

Their own worst enemy.

UPDATE:  The cut and run - with a little pork on the side - bill passed 218-212.   14 Democrats vote against the bill.  Only two Republicans sided with Pelosi on the bill.
