Another absurd ad repeating the absolute lie that Sarah Palin stopped the "Bridge To Nowhere." As everyone knows by now, she lobbied for the bridge to nowhere, and the federal Congress killed it, and then she kept the money for other projects anyway. But McCain is still airing ads telling the same lie.

He has also still not retracted his lie on The View when he point blank said that Palin has refused all earmarks as governor. I cannot remember a candidate for president telling such a bald-faced lie on national television and not retracting. And I cannot remember a press corps so pathetic they cannot badger his campaign for a retraction after two days.
