"McCain repeats Bridge to Nowhere lie on CNN."
This morning on CNN, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) defended Gov. Sarah Palin’s record on requesting hundreds of millions of dollars worth of earmarks, and repeated the lie that Palin had opposed the Bridge to Nowhere in Alaska. “I’m proud of her record as opposing — including the Bridge to Nowhere in Alaska,” he said. Watch it:
McCain’s statement brings the total number of times his campaign has repeated the lie to 35 times. Just yesterday in Colorado, Palin herself declared that she “did tell the Congress, ‘Thanks but no thanks for that Bridge to Nowhere.’”
