Palin Continues to Lie About Bridge To Nowhere

Tonight Sarah Palin, obviously with the full approval of John McCain, repeated the lie that she opposed the infamous "bridge to nowhere."
I told the Congress "thanks, but no thanks," for that Bridge to Nowhere.
If our state wanted a bridge, we'd build it ourselves. When oil and gas prices went up dramatically, and filled up the state treasury, I sent a large share of that revenue back where it belonged - directly to the people of Alaska.
Not just a lie, but a damned lie. As I pointed out earlier today:

Remember that bridge to nowhere Sarah Palin was supposed to have opposed and stopped, since she is a mavericky reformer and soulmate of John McCain?

Even better, though, is this picture of Palin and her team campaigning in Ketchikan, back when their votes mattered and the bridge was a good thing:
Let's not forget what Sarah Palin said the night she was introduced to the nation as the potential 72 year old heartbeat away from the presidency:
In fact, I told Congress — I told Congress, “Thanks, but no thanks,” on that bridge to nowhere.
Well, maybe Sarah Palin is ready to be on the GOP ticket...she has the lying thing down pat.
