Anchorage on Bridge to Nowhere

More from the ADN on Palin. This one is particularly touching. Palin feels bad that the Bridge-to-Nowhere Alaskans were being called "nowhere."

But Palin was for the Bridge to Nowhere before she was against it.

The Alaska governor campaigned in 2006 on a build-the-bridge platform, telling Ketchikan residents she felt their pain when politicians called them "nowhere." They're still feeling pain today in Ketchikan, over Palin's subsequent decision to use the bridge funds for other projects -- and over the timing of her announcement, which they say came in a pre-dawn press release that seemed aimed at national news deadlines.

"I think that's when the campaign for national office began," said Ketchikan Mayor Bob Weinstein on Saturday.

Awwwww. What a precious little liar she is.

It's also hilarious that although the bridge itself was cancelled, she still used all the money. Net effect of her "reform" (even if it existed) to US Taxpayer? Zero.
