Palin backed 'bridge to nowhere' in 2006

    In her nationally televised speech accepting the job as John McCain's running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she "championed reform to end the abuses of earmark spending by Congress" and opposed federal funding for a controversial bridge to a sparsely populated island.

    "I told Congress, 'Thanks, but no thanks,' on that bridge to nowhere," Palin said Friday in Ohio, using the critics' dismissive name of the project. "'If our state wanted a bridge,' I said, 'we'd build it ourselves.'"

    While running for governor in 2006, though, Palin backed federal funding for the infamous bridge, which McCain helped make a symbol of pork barrel excess.

    Hahahaha this is not only a train wreck in progress, it's probably the biggest train wreck in US political history.

    McCain is doomed.

    The media is going to have a field day with this Palin mess.

    I'm sure she has some nude photos that will soon show up online.

    What an implosion. The entire world is laughing at these 20th percentile republican jokers.
