John McCain on Civil Engineering

01 May 2008

From an AP story, titled "McCain blames Minnesota bridge collapse on wasted money":

Republican John McCain said Wednesday that the bridge collapse in Minnesota that killed 13 people last year would not have happened if Congress had not wasted so much money on pork-barrel spending...."The bridge in Minneapolis didn't collapse because there wasn't enough money," McCain told reporters while campaigning in Pennsylvania. "The bridge in Minneapolis collapsed because so much money was spent on wasteful, unnecessary pork-barrel projects."
Of course.

UPDATE: In other news, John McCain wants to suspend the federal gas tax, which is where the Highway Trust Fund gets its money in the first place. This is a bad idea.

UPDATE II: This guy is ridiculous.

UPDATE III: He also says that he wants to kick Russia out of G8.
