    Are you talking about the Gravina Island Bridge almost 10 years ago? I will assume you are going by liberal media accounts on that.

    Interpreting that as Palin saying she wants us to attack Russia with nuclear weapons is like anti-gun people declaring anyone who wants a gun wants to shoot someone.

    Do you know how to put together a post without the word LIBERAL in it?
    Do you even know why Gov. Brewer used the phrase 'a bridge too far'--quick--google?
    And which state was that bridge in again--who was the governor ?

    She compared it exactly to gun control. It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun, and it takes a good guy with a nuke to stop a bad guy with a nuke, which she said in context of not reducing our nuclear arsenal.

    The rabid outlying lying about Palin is due to it now proven she was right and the media wrong for her comments on the campaign trail about Russia invading Ukraine. When all else fails, then outright lie. That is what the OP poll is build on - a known, deliberate lie to try to divert from her being right about Russia invading Ukraine.

    The original idea of the bridge was never that costly. That airport has over 100,000 travelers annually, who go by ferry. At some point the three operational ferry's will need replaced. What will that cost?

    back on point...

    After applying for federal aid on the project, the price skyrocketed, to meet federal standards for federal funds. Nobody wanted the bridge to die, but it eventually happened, especially when "pork barrel projects" became a common slogan.

    If federal standards for construction wasn't so stringent, the project could have been much cheaper.

    The bridge too far from Brewer dealt with guns on campus, which she vetoed, just like she vetoed the recent 1062.
    The same gun bill in Idaho right now.
    And you have Joko comparing gun issues to what Palin said.
    And Sen. Graham quipping we'll lose Alaska to Putin.

    I thought you were confusing "the bridge to nowhere" with what you said. I never heard the Brewer quote before.

    What makes you think I listen to republicans?

    I keep thinking there must be some reason Palin isn't unemployed, but for the life of me, I can't quite figure out why anyone would want to keep her around.

    Even considering Palin's stupidity I doubt that she really said that. Even the most extremist hawks in this forum whose grasp on foreign politics are equal to their grasp on reality don't advocate that particular path.
    As for how this thread evolved from a somewhat out-of-context OP to a Palin-fawning fest, I have no idea. Apparently Palin is the ideal woman to some people in this forum
    "The misery of being exploited by capitalists is nothing compared to the misery of not being exploited at all" - Joan Robinson
    "The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries" - Winston Churchill
