Palin Against Saving Energy

May 22, 2009

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin turned down 28.6 million dollars in stimulus money.

“Alaskans and our communities have a long history of independence and opposing many mandates from Washington, D.C, ” she proclaimed.

This after the state has already accepted $930 million from Washington D.C. Way to be independent. Shockingly, you are not going to believe what the money was to be used for.

It turns out that this money would have gone to energy efficiency—weatherizing homes against the bitter cold, that kind of thing.

I hear it gets cold in Alaska. You would think weatherizing homes there would be a good thing. Wait a minute. Could it be that the less advantaged who do not have the money to weatherize their homes are the same people who tend to vote for democrats. That can’t be it! Can it?

    Thanks to Ted Stevens. But Palin was against that bridge to nowhere as soon as she began running for the vice presidency ;-)
