Palin and the Bridge
Ok we've all heard of the bridge to nowhere, that perfect symbol of pork. Many of you probably know that the Alaskan Governor was for the project, at least until it became politically impossible to support it at which point she was against it. Whatever, typical politician shit. An interesting side note to all of that, which a co-worker loves to point out. The state of Alaska still got the 200 million dollars to build the bridge to nowhere, although it would have ultimately cost about twice that, so when they decided against it what happened to all that money? That symbol of pork? They kept it.
