Joke of the day

Sarah Palin, Governor of the state with the largest, most ravenous appetite for Federal dollars of any in the Union, is proclaiming her intention to turn down Federal stimulus money. The onetime Mayor of Wasilla, who raised taxes and floated a $14.7 million bond to pay for a new hockey rink and wound up leaving the small town $22 million dollars in debt is worried that by accepting stimulus funds aimed at improving Alaska's educational system she would leave the state with finacial liabilities long after Federal stimulus money had run out.

So, just in case you're keeping score:

Hockey Rinks: good
Schools: bad

thanks to the wise and wonderful andrew sullivan, it was brought to my attention some of the stimulus money turned down by the "good governor" was funds to help children's education, including special needs children. so much for her credibility in bashing obama's gaffe....

Here's hoping she keeps this up and the clones elect her the GOP nominee in 2012!
