The Senate passed its own version of the wall street bailout earlier tonight, it include such gems as:
  • An "Exemption from excise tax for certain wooden arrows designed for use by children."
  • An earmark for auto racing.
  • An earmark for wool research.
  • An "increase in limit on cover over of rum excise tax to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands."
