McCain: Earmarks Bad, Palin Good

So what is up with this Senator McCain?
Last week, Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain said his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, hadn't sought earmarks or special-interest spending from Congress, presenting her as a fiscal conservative. But state records show Gov. Palin has asked U.S. taxpayers to fund $453 million in specific Alaska projects over the past two years.

These projects include more than $130 million in federal funds that would benefit Alaska's fishing industry and an additional $9 million to help Alaska oil companies. She also has sought $4.5 million to upgrade an airport on a Bering Sea island that has a year-round population of less than 100.

It's called research, try it sometime you might be surprised what you discover, especially on issues you consider to be part of your platform. Then again considering the truth doesn't seem to be an issue with you, maybe you already knew.

Oh and by the way, this is Rupert Murdoch's own Wall Street Journal reporting this not your everyday liberal rag...
