In all fairness, the pork database blocked by Sen. Stevens's (R-AK) secret hold has a higher public profile (I believe, at least) than the transparency-in-contracting bill blocked by Sen Byrd (D-WV). (Actually, I personally hadn't yet heard of the latter bill.) Still, it's demonstrably inappropriate to politicize the blockage of legislation of this type, seeing as how party affiliation has far less to do with the obstructions than does an apparent desire to keep one's spending under wraps.
