The earmark avenger strikes again

A peek at tonight's interview between Sarah Palin and Charlie Gibson...Gibson tackles the Bridge to Nowhere debate (she was for it before she was against it after Congress pulled the plug). Giving her a chance to explain her flip flop about the bridge, Gibson said: "Do you want to revise or extend your remarks." Palin replied:

"It is [sic] always been an embarrassment that abuse of the earform [sic], earmark, process has been accepted in Congress and that's what John McCain has fought and what I joined him in fighting. It's been an embarrassment, not just Alaska projects, but McCain gives example after example after example. I mean, every state has their embarrassments."

Instead of revising her remarks about the bridge, Palin continues to prattle the party line about how John McCain and she will be the great earmark avengers. The real 'embarrassment' is McCain-Palin continuing to tout Palin as a reformer who boldly stood up to Congress and said "No thanks on that bridge to nowhere!"

No thanks Sarah, we're not buying it.
