Mayor Weinstein should be thanking Sarah Palin right now. Had
it not been for Palin becoming the GOP VP candidate the Mayor
would not be the celebraty he is today. No NYtimes, no CNN, he
would just be the mayor of a Ketchikan, Alaska. Ketchikan known
for its bridge to nowhere well before Sarah Palin was nominated.
Ketchikan where many people are struggling through cancer. Ketchikan
where just recently the water was declared ok to drink. "Ketchikan,
a quaint little drinking villiage with a fishing problem."
Mayor Weinstein, you sure looked good there on CNN bragging about
your road to nowhere. Why did you not mention that the road was
built not because Sarah said it was ok, but because the road
was earmarked by congress, a very niave congress who obviously
does not research what they are spending our money on.
The money for the bridge was not earmarked. Well they removed
the earmark, allowing Palin and the Alaska senate to do what
they pleased with the money.
It is funny how people will try to hurt others careers because
they did not get what they felt was theirs. Truth is, Sarah Palin
has done alot more for Alaska over the past month than any could
Also, Mayor Weinstein should
be thrilled that a person from Alaska for the first time ever
is running for this high of a position.
