First of all, earmarking is a Republican thing:

Republicans Indulging in Pork Along With Power

. . . Legislation for labor, health and education programs, for instance, carries earmarks valued at more than $860 million this year [2003]. A comparable bill written by Democrats and passed in 1994, according to the report, had none. . . .

Second, if you believe that story that it's all Harry Reid's fault, then I've got some swampland in Florida you might be interested in.
