Russ Carnahan: "Fiscally Responsible" Porker of the Month!

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit posted a Russ Carnahan (D-MO) campaign flyer:
Oh brother…
These people have no shame.
Big spending liberal democrats are coming back home to their districts and trying to persuade constituents that they are fiscal conservatives.
Here is a Russ Carnahan flyer that a friend picked up this week.
The flyer says in part:
Fiscal Responsibility
As an original sponsor of Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO), Russ fought to restore the fiscal restraint that helped build record surpluses in the mid-1990s.
The irony is that Citizens Against Government Waste named Russ Carnahan the July 2009 Porker of the Month! As a commenter at Gateway Pundit pointed out, Carnahan's lifetime rating with Citizens Against Government Waste is 4%. For 2009 his rating isn't even that high. In the year in which he co-sponsored PAYGO, his rating is 0%.
