Since I have several commenters here who insist upon trafficking in rumor and innuendo about Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin, I feel impelled to post a couple useful links:
And yes, I know that Sarah Palin didn’t always oppose the “Bridge to Nowhere” and did accept earmarked federal funds years ago as Wasilla mayor, though she ended up strongly (and has remained) on the right side of the issue. Alaskans have taken for granted that Palin is responsible for killing the “Bridge to “Nowhere” (until very recently, even the Alaska Democratic Party even acknowledged as much on their website).
Besides, do Barack Obama and Joe Biden really want to make an issue of Palin’s maturing opinion, in light of the larger context of her undeniable reform record as Alaska Governor and the fact that both Obama and Biden both voted to earmark money for the “Bridge to Nowhere” instead of hurricane relief.
The Left’s tactics have backfired. It only remains to be seen whether they have learned their lesson, or whether they want to keep baling water on their candidate’s sinking ship.
