WRAL-TV finds the blust in "bluster" as Republicans in Raleigh cheerfully become the vote whores they once denounced:
Rep. John Blust, R-Guilford, conceded there were things in the final deal he would like to change, but he objected to Democrats' repeated references to pork-barrel spending.
"My head’s almost spinning at the hypocrisy. They’re just shocked – shocked! – that there’s pork-barrel spending," Blust said.
