Palin Rejects Education to Nowhere

with 10 comments

Sarah Palin has again emerged as a Republican hero.  She told the lawmakers in Wasington, “Thanks, but no thanks” on their education to nowhere.   Palin accepted only $530 million of the $914 million appropriated to Alaska as part of the recent economic stimulus plan.  The biggest chunk of the funding that she rejected was $160 million for education.

As Governor Palin  told reporters, “I told congress thanks, but no thanks on that education to nowhere.  It doesn’t take a lot of fancy book learning to drive a snow mobile or shoot a moose.  If the people of Alaska want our kids to learn something, we’ll teach them ourselves.”  Palin did accept the parts of the stimulus for programs to build bridges, roads, and aviation projects which she deemed far more useful.

Of course, we at enthusiastically cheer Sarah Palin as an opponent to wasteful spending on things like text books and vocational training.   You don’t need vocational training in Alaska just go find something to shoot and feed your family with it.   This was a wasteful spending project that would simply confuse Alaskans with a lot of book learning.  People forget that having attended 7 different colleges and universities, this is one governor who knows a lot about education.

  4. Nate,
    I have to correct you though.. they aren’t snow mobiles.. in Alaska.. they are called snow machines.. you have to call them correctly..

    and you forgot that she doesn’t want to help special needs children most especially, too also. Thats important.

  6. Zen – You don’t need fancy book learning to be a plumber either, especially if you aren’t licensed.

    Annette – I think she is making not funding special needs children a priority.

  7. Ha, Nate, you’re the best. I wish you could be Vice President when Palin is elected prez. You know, someone in the tradition of the great Dan Quayle… What do you think?

  8. Thank you Lola

  9. “Thank you, Lola”?! That’s all you have to say? I thought Dan Quayle was one of your most beloved vice presidents ever! An inspiration, actually. Why don’t you have a poll asking who’s the best American vice-prez?

  10. Dan Quayle was a beloved VP, though I still think he’s no Dick Cheney. I think that could make a great poll come to think of it.
