Pretty Palin’s Line About The Bridge To Nowhere Angers Many Alsakans

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) – It garnered big applause in her first speech as Republican John McCain‘s vice presidential pick, but Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s assertion that she rejected Congressional funds for the so-called “bridge to nowhere” has upset many Alaskans.

[...]When she was running for governor in 2006, Palin said she was insulted by the term “bridge to nowhere,” according to Ketchikan Mayor Bob Weinstein, a Democrat, and Mike Elerding, a Republican who was Palin’s campaign coordinator in the southeast Alaska city.

“People are learning that she pandered to us by saying, I’m for this’ … and then when she found it was politically advantageous for her nationally, abruptly she starts using the very term that she said was insulting,” Weinstein said.

Much better coverage of this hypocritical, and easily uncovered, lie is in the Reuters longer story. Pretty Palin simply lied at the McCain annoucement as well taking Hillary’s line, “Thanks, but no thanks.” including the hand gesture. Those are words anyone can use but if ‘Pretty Palin’ was going to copy the most popular female politician in the United States, she should have at least given a shout out to the woman who she was copying. Who the hell vetted this woman? It’s another show of the incompetence of the McCain-Pretty Palin-George Bush ticket.

One Response to Pretty Palin’s Line About The Bridge To Nowhere Angers Many Alsakans

  1. Freedom says:

    Bridge to Nowhere – a Palin scandal?

    The news is reporting that Palin “flip-flopped” on the Bridge to Nowhere, and never sent back the money. The source of these news storeis is a “Mayor Bob Weinstein” of Ketchikan, Alaska.

    Bob Weinstein is an entrenched Democrat. He is Alaska’s longest serving Mayor.

    Bob Weinstein also has an ax to grind against Sarah Palin.

    In May 12, 2008, the Juneau Empire newspaper reported in the story, “Ketchikan mayor says bias shown in road plan” the following:

    Ketchikan’s mayor, angry about the loss of the city’s infamous “Bridge to Nowhere,” is accusing the Juneau-based Department of Transportation and Public Facilities staff of bias against his project and being in favor of the Juneau Access Project. “It has been obvious to me for some time that the Southeast Region of DOT has an emotional commitment to the Juneau Access Project, and has been driving the project forward through the use of what appears to be inaccurate, incomplete and/or misleading information,” wrote Bob Weinstein, mayor of Ketchikan, in a March letter to DOT Commissioner Leo Von Scheben.

    Palin gets nominated, an entrenched Democrat Mayor with an ax to grind against Palin starts a story, the liberal newspapers pick it up, and the Mayor’s accusations become “fact”.
