Sarah, you've got some explaining to do:
The biggest single chunk of money that Palin is turning down is about $170 million for education, including money that would go for programs to help economically disadvantaged and special needs students. Anchorage School Superintendent Carol Comeau said she is "shocked and very disappointed" that Palin would reject the schools money. She said it could be used for job preservation, teacher training, and helping kids who need it.
And it gets better. She seems to not care that she is denying fund to go toward education and even seems to hint that it really isn't that important to her at all.
....It is a matter of discussing with our lawmakers if the expansion there is something we're willing to pick up the tab for when the federal dollars dry up, when they no longer flow into Alaska.
I'll just sit here and wait for Malkin, Morrissey, Hewitt, the clowns at RedState, and all their pals to respond.
I think I might be waiting for a LONG time.
