Yes, Gov. Palin is still building the Access Road to the No-Bridge to Nowhere, and doing it with your money and mine.
If Sarah Palin is not being truthful on an issue like the Gravina bridge project, what else is she not being truthful about?
But here’s a better one: If John McCain is not being truthful about his chosen running-mate’s one claimed accomplishment, what else is he not being truthful about?
The shocking thing about the “Bridge to Nowhere” story is not that it was a fib: that stuff happens on campaigns. It’s that McCain and Palin continue (except when Palin is in Alaska) to repeat a false story long after it has been repeatedly debunked. It’s an insult to the press and to the voters, and it’s a very bad augury of how McCain would wield the fearsome powers the modern Presidency has to bamboozle the citizens.
The issue isn’t the bridge, or even Palin. The issue is McCain, who once subscribed to a code that forbade him to lie, cheat, or steal.
