President Obama can breathe a sigh of relief. The Senate just voted to keep all those earmarks that don’t exist in the $410 billion spending bill.

GOP Sen. John McCain’s amendment stripping the omni-pork package of an estimated 8,500 pet projects worth roughly $8 billion was defeated this afternoon. You can find a database of all those teeny, tiny pork projects here.
