24-Hour Dorman: "Pork" and bonds

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

In the "Tower of Invincibility," Republicans think they have found an
exploitable weakness in Gov. Chet Culver's big bonding plan. Instead,
they're showing empty-headed, inch-deep partisan politics. The tower
is a 12-story office building planned by folks in Vedic City, the
southern Iowa town built on the principles of transcendental
mediation.The governor's office told communities to submit any and all
ideas for using a potential $750 million pot of infrastructure money.
Vedic City sent in its tower. Once the list became public, Republicans
eager to shoot down the Democratic governor's signature legislative
proposal swiftly wielded the "Tower of Invincibility" as a weapon.
