    Too bad he didn't vote "Present"

    You know, Barack 0bama should think before he speaks.

    The latest DNC and 0 campaign talking point is that Sarah Palin was for the "Bridge to Nowhere" before she was against it.

    As has been detailed, Palin cancelled the "Bridge" project after Congress released the money to be spent as the state saw fit, vice as "earmarked" (get it?) for the bridge. She did this over the objections of the AK Congressional delegation and it is for that she's lauded - taking on Ted Stevens and the AK pork crew.

    Of course, when you're a Senator, as the other three candidates are, you have a record, and in this case, both 0bama and his running mate, Mr. Biden, voted FOR the bridge, twice. They voted for a bunch of other earmarks, as well.

    McCain, on the other hand, was voting against the bridge.

    So, on one hand, we have a Washington neophyte, schooled in the patronage ways of the Chicago political machine, passing some goodies to his Senate buddies; a lifetime Senator with hairplugs, doing the same, and on the other, we have McCain, opposing it, and Palin, taking her state's money, and spending it, instead of on the bridge, on more meaningful projects.

    You tell me who's for change in this picture.
