I've got another idea that I think Senator McCain likes. In Alaska, we took the state checkbook and put it online, so everyone can see where their money goes. We're going to bring that kind of openness to Washington [Governor Sarah Palin, quoted by David Espo, "Palin Spells out Her Role in McCain Administration," AP via Yahoo News, 2008.09.15].
News flash: If Palin read the Madville Times, she'd know that the federal government put its checkbook online in 2006. Little something called the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act. Senator Barack Obama helped Senator Tom Coburn get it passed in hopes that it would alert Americans to bonehead projects like the Bridge to Nowhere in Alaska (gee, must've worked!). Senator John McCain was also a co-sponsor.
If you're going to campaign on bringing new ideas to Washington, you should probably actually talk about an idea that's new to Washington.
Good grief—next thing you know, Palin will be telling us she invented the Internet. ;-)
