So there's a bit of a thing in Sarah Palin's humdinger of a red meat convention speech. She talks about the bridge to nowhere. Turns out she was for it until the political winds shifted, and then she was against it.
A few Freepers called her on it. But most of them, well...idological purity only goes so far when you're in luuuve.
pissant just doesn't care about honesty in politics:
I agree. Wise flip. Like Romney’s on abortion, guns and just about everything else. But it will give the demos some ammo, regardless. Nothing major.
"wise flip" WTF?
tobyhill just keeps his standards super low:
She never said she never supported the bridge but in the end she didn't support it.
Well, if she didn't describe exactly what she did, I guess that's okay then.
Candor7 plays the gender card. Republican style:
That could be a real problem if Palin were a man.
But as a woman, and a darned purty one, she can say:
"A lady is allowed to change her mind!"
Soft bigotry of low expectations indeed!
Blogger just rewrites the facts:
She vetoed the project and Alaska kept the delegation money as payback to repair the damage done to Alaskan infrastructure due to the many out of state employees the federal government sends into the area. Not sure how she would send back
money already obtained.
So, Sarah as the fiscal conservative fighting for responsible spending is intact.
Repair the damage done to the Alaskan infrastructure? Brilliant! If it weren't for the ANWR talking point that Alaska's infrastructure is strong like moose, I'd say this was going to be the next talking point.
