Yes, This Metaphor Will Dispel the Accusations of Wasteful Pork Spending

Finally, honesty in government from Rep. Gerry Connolly (D., Va.) in discussing the stimulus: "I want to be there with all four paws and snout in the trough."

UPDATE: A reader objects, contending that because the previous sentence is, "when it comes to my district I want a big chunk of that money," it changes the context. I'm not quite sure why hoglike behavior such as sticking a snout in a trough, is a good thing when it's done in the name of constituents, but the objection is noted.

A second reader notes that pigs have hooves and wonders if there are some sort of mutant hogs in Connolly's district.
