Palin Supporters’ Tortured LogicBy
Over at Powerline, a major message center in Right Blogistan, they’re trying to explain why it’s o.k. for Sarah Palin to say that she was against the Bridge to Nowhere without ever explaining that she was a fan of it before she was a rival. They do a standard “attack the left wing media” angle and then this happens:
It’s true that when Palin uses her “thanks, but no thanks” line she omits certain information — her initial support for the project, the fact that Congress revoked the earmark, and the fact that Bridge had become an embarrassment by the time Palin nixed it. But the fact remains that nothing Congress did would have prevented Alaska from using federal money to build the bridge. It was Palin who stopped this from happening.
