Porkbuster Fatigue

NZ Bear found a new slogan for his Porkbusters blogsite:

“We make Trent Lott Tired.”

Here’s how the AP reports the source of Lott’s “tiredness:”

"I'll just say this about the so-called porkbusters. I'm getting damn tired of hearing from them. They have been nothing but trouble ever since Katrina," he said. "We in Mississippi have not asked for more than we deserve. We've been very reasonable."

We had a derisive saying in our unit, usually uttered in response to some act of extreme selfishness or other self-serving behavior by one or other staff officer at Battalion or Division:

“I got mine.”

Trent’s got his. The taxpayers can go pound salt. [More characteristically frank military terminology inserted here.]

NZ Bear’s response to Trent’s expression of fatigue?

I'm sorry to say it, but we have just barely gotten started making the likes of Mr. Lott tired. So I hope he's ready for many sleepless nights to come.

Tired? My guess Senator Lott’s going to be pretty ragged when NZ Bear, Glenn Reynolds, and the other Army of Davids’ soldiers over at Porkbusters.
