Palin kept the Bridge to Nowhere funds..

On Friday, Sarah Palin said the following about the infamous Ted Stevens’ Bridge to Nowhere:

“I told Congress, ‘Thanks, but no thanks,’ on that bridge to nowhere.”

The bridge and the earmark were already in the news and unpopular as hell with fellow Alaskans, so realistically, how could our little beauty queen say anything different? Now, the funds for that bridge, well…thats a different story:

When Palin says “I told Congress, ‘Thanks, but no thanks,’ on that bridge to nowhere,” it implies Congress said, “Here’s a check for that bridge” and she responded, “No thanks, that’s wasteful spending; here’s your money back.”

That’s not what happened. Fact is, Alaska took the bridge money, and then just spent it on other projects.

So, is she full of shit? Oh yes she is….and she might not be a DC insider but she knows how to twist the facts to suit her own special interests..
