Say It Ain't So, Sarah

The "stimulus" bill will almost assuredly pass and for that I cannot be more ill. It's nothing more than pork projects all piled into one, gargantuan, bloated, bribing bill for politicians to use as "proof" that they are doing something.

And sadly, so sadly, many GOP governors are trying to get "their share" of the pork. Even Sarah.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, planned to meet in Washington this weekend with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and other senators to press for her state's share of the package.

NOOOOO!!!! Say it ain't so!!!!

I had such high hopes but reality is that she is still a politician and will work to get her state's share of the pork. That is her job. But it still sucks.

Even Bobby Jindall said he would accept money from the Feds. *sigh* Though he does say he'd vote against it.

So take a stand Bobby...don't accept Washington's bribes. Federal money is never "free" and always comes with strings and more federal control. It wouldn't be the popular move perhaps, but it would be the RIGHT thing to do.

It's not always the popular or easy thing, I know. Where are there politicians willing to do the RIGHT thing???

If you find one will you let the rest of us know? I'm sure you will.

Try to have a terrific day. :)
