Palin: Thanks but no thanks??? [uh uh]

Here's what Governor Palin says she said to Congress about the "bridge to nowhere", as an example of her saying "no" to pork barrel funding:
"Thanks but no thanks!"
Here's what she really said (emphasis added):

"Ketchikan desires a better way to reach the airport, but the $398 million bridge is not the answer. Despite the work of our congressional delegation, we are about $329 million short of full funding for the bridge project, and it’s clear that Congress has little interest in spending any more money on a bridge between Ketchikan and Gravina Island. Much of the public’s attitude toward Alaska bridges is based on inaccurate portrayals of the projects here. But we need to focus on what we can do, rather than fight over what has happened."
