McClatchy scores again! Not only does the story include the obvious (but, as far as I know, previously used except in this space) “for it before she was against it,” and not only does it call Palin on the misrepresentation she made at her rollout, but it provides one delicious new detail:
The state is continuing to build a road on Gravina Island to an empty beach where the bridge would have gone — because federal money for the access road, unlike the bridge money, would have otherwise been returned to the federal government.
So the governor, who decided to spend the federal money that would have paid for the Bridge to Nowhere on other projects, is still building the Access Road to the Non-Bridge to Nowhere with your tax dollars, and mine.
Bonus fun fact: As Mayor, Palin cut the museum budget and fought an increase in the library budget while pushing for a publicly-funded ice hockey arena.
