Bridge to ... whoops!

Not to defend Sarah Palin's political gymnastics on the Bridge to Nowhere, but she's not the only politician with a revisionist history on the issue. Says CNN:
Although Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden routinely mocks his Republican counterpart, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, for her onetime support of the infamous "Bridge to Nowhere," Biden and his running mate voted to keep the project alive twice.

Both Biden and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama voted to kill a Senate amendment that would have diverted federal funding for the bridge to repair a Louisiana span badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina, Senate records show.

And both voted for the final transportation bill that included the $223 million earmark for the Alaska project.

All together now: Flip-flop, flip-flop ...
