The Bridge was 400 million

that is what she said "No thanks to."

She said if we want a bridge

"We will pay for it ourselves"

if the bridges get built they will need the road.

The 26 million for the road would never have gone "in your pocket"


each of the 50 states get money from Congress for projects

Where do you think the money that congress spends comes from?

And unless they send the money over seas, all money congress spends will end up in one of the 50 states.

Anyway, pose this question again after the VP debate. But, I like what I've heard so far and I agree with her positions on issues more than any of the other 3 candidates on the tickets.

ProPublica: Palin's Road to Nowhere | Newsweek Politics: Campaign 2008 | Newsweek.com
Sarah Palin said yes, thanks, to a road to nowhere in Alaska - Los Angeles Times



The problem isn't that it's there---the whole thing with pork barrel projects is that they seem useless (even though this one really is!). The REAL problem is that she had the opportunity to cancel it, but didn't! What judgement!

Man, $26million would've looked great in schools, real roads, back in my pocket.......
Yet another example of how certain people that are scared of Palin becoming Vice-President or President of the United States totally over-reach at particular subjects...this one is not quite as bad as the "Bush Doctrine" but it's coming awful close. I'm guessing that most people are sick and tired of this "Bridge to Nowhere" nonsense - you wanna know why?? Because it leads NOWHERE!!! Who cares if she was "for it" then "against it" - what politician hasn't been caught in that one???

There's got to be some achilles heal for real attacks that matter. What it is I haven't figured out yet. I'm guessing the "No abortion - even in the case of rape and insest" might do it, but, is there any evidence that she's tried any legislation on that or, as weirdly extreme as it is, is it just her personal belief???

Except she didn't say no thanks. She was all for it until it became a political liability. And then she kept the money anyway.

Good thing too. Imagine how boring and uninspiring the view would be if her porch in Juneau faced to the east?

Sorry I don't fit into your pigeonhole!
Sure. Spiro Agnew, Vice President for Nixon had never met a foreign head of State either, but that was way back in the "primative times" of 1968 before many people in here were born, so I guess thats not relevant.

I know, eh?

Imagine seeing this vast land with more oil than anybody, vast drinking water and a healthy economy? I'd be real upset too.

But how can you show the world how tough you are with a leaf for a flag and an anthem that includes French? The answer is none tough.

It's almost cute how you continually miss the point.

It's like a recipe:

1. Miss the point.
2. Ask for a specific date and time as to when a candidate becomes ready for office.
3. OPTIONAL: Mention Resolution 1441.
4. *NEW*
