Palin Lies About the "Bridge to Nowhere"

Gads. Palin's barely got her nose out of the closet and is already lying? Not good. In the three articles below, watch for the bridge subject. Fact is, it was all but dead when she finally tossed it altogether. She did not "stop" the bridge to nowhere. Nor did she, as she claimed on Friday, return the money to the federal government.

"I told congress thanks but no thanks on that bridge to nowhere."

This is her bit on Friday. Her solution to energy independence is the $28billion new gas pipeline in Alaska. Gee. Big thinker. McCain looks absolutely petrified in the video. Don't blame him. She never even endorsed him.

You may want to read these three articles in Editor and Publisher. The interviews are with journalists and editors in Alaska who know and/or report on Palin. They were wholly unimpressed.

The articles are, so far, in three parts, here, here, and here. They are quite interesting.
UPDATE: it is now clear that Palin did lie, without question. Another article is here
