Road to Nowhere Opens

leave a comment »

How will the prom queen spin this one? Her Road to Nowhere, a $25 million gravel road leading to the site of the bridge that Palin championed but now lies about, opened this weekend in Alaska. The road was built with federal tax dollars.

The 3.2 mile road will serve as a running track for 5k and 10k races and perhaps useful to hunters so that they need not trudge through brush during their attempts to kill things, but that’s about it.

See Palin was for the bridge before she was against, but even after she turned against the $400 million project, she sure the hell wasn’t giving any of the money back. That’s why she built the $25 million service road to approach the bridge (that doesn’t exist). So she was able to keep the federal cash. 

John McCain says he opposes pork barrel spending. His choice for VP seems to indicate that he places politics above principle.
