Palin's Bridge to Nowhere

We all heard Sarah Palin the other day say, "In fact, I told Congress — I told Congress, ‘Thanks, but no thanks,’ on that bridge to nowhere. If our state wanted a bridge, I said we’d build it ourselves."

That's a great claim to make, if it's true. But it appears to be false. Check out this article from Think Progress.

Palin had other things to say about the bridge to nowhere back before she had any idea she'd be McCain's VP pick.

The Anchorage Daily News asked her about it in 2006, whether she was still in favor of state funding for it. She said, "Yes. I would like to see Alaska’s infrastructure projects built sooner rather than later. The window is now–while our congressional delegation is in a strong position to assist. "
