OMB provides links to 2008 Appropriations Earmarks

The Office of Managment and Budget has links to PDFs detailing earmarks in the 2008 Appropriations bills. Now, if they could just get the information into an easily searchable database:
Limitations of the Earmarks Database:

This database is not designed, and cannot accurately be used, to identify the individual congressional sponsors of earmarks. In addition, the recipient listed in the database may not in all cases represent the ultimate beneficiary of the earmark. For example, if the Federal Government provides funds to a specific recipient (e.g., a City), that recipient may then provide the funds or benefits to another entity and may not be required to identify the ultimate beneficiary to the Federal Government.
