Stuffed Turkey in the House

From Green Scissors' latest newsletter:

"It's not a good way to legislate, although I got a lot of stuff in it [the transportation bill]...I mean I stuffed it like a turkey."

Rep. Don Young (R-AK) from a story in the New York Times (Built With Steel, Perhaps, but Greased With Pork, April 10, 2004), citing a story in the Anchorage Daily News.
