Good point

Bob Krumm makes a good point about the AIG bill of attainder:

As bad a precedent as the AIG bill is, there is one positive.  Congress has established the principle that $165 million is not too inconsequential a sum as to require strict budget hawkishness.  I can’t wait to apply that standard during the next earmark fight.

(Via Instapundit.)

The problem with this point is it assumes some sort of consistency from Congress.  This isn’t about fiscal policy, this is the Congressional equivalent of a mob with torches and pitchforks.
