Paul Begala Rocks!

GOP strategist Alex Castellanos and former Bill Clinton adviser Paul Begala spar on CNN over the spin being given to Gov. Sarah Palin's record, specifically the infamous "bridge to nowhere":

ALEX CASTELLANOS:
The amazing thing about Sarah Palin is when she became governor she actually stood up and said no.

PAUL BEGALA:
That’s not true.

CASTELLANOS:
She took a strong stand. That is rare and that never happened.

BEGALA:
That’s just not true. You know...the facts matter. There’s lots of things that are debatable who is more qualified or less experienced or more this or more passionate, whatever. It is a fact that she campaigned and supported that bridge to nowhere. It is a fact that she hired lobbyists to get earmarks. It is a fact that as governor she lobbies for earmarks. Her state is essentially a welfare state taking money from the federal government…This is the problem. We have this false debate when we ought to have at least agreed upon facts.

You are the man, Paul B.
