Clean bill of health?

Interesting how "severe" and "extensive" corrosion of its beams and trusses, "widespread cracking" in spans and missing or broken bolts equals a "clean bill of health" according to Coleman and Pawlenty. Also interesting is the timing of Pawlenty and Coleman's statements, before reporters looked more closely at the inspection reports - sounds to me like preemptive spinning in the face of years of neglect and a vetoed transportation bill.
