This is what I think the world needs to know about McCain/Palin: Palin ran for governor on platform of supporting the bridge to nowhere. When the US Congress removed the earmark for it, with national media scrutiny suddenly in the picture, Palin kept the money, but distributed it to other projects instead of building the bridge, although she did build the road that would have led to the bridge. This chain of events is well known, but the campaign continues to run ads claiming she "stopped the bridge to nowhere". The most charitable name I can come up with for this claim is "bullshit", but I think it's also safe to call it a lie.
