About That Jet…

One of the compelling anecdotes about Sarah Palin is that she auctioned off the Alaska governor’s jet on eBay after taking office — a swift move made by a reformer hoping to clean up the excesses of her predecessor.

But in fact, the jet did not sell on eBay. It was sold to a businessman from Valdez named Larry Reynolds, who paid $2.1 million for the jet, shy of the original $2.7 million purchase price, according to contemporaneous news reports, including a story in the New York Times.

News Flash to the Washington Post [1], and the various Kossacks, Coles, Drums, etc of the world:

: [2]Hey, Jackasses: Were you actually listening to what was said? [3]

While I was at it, I got rid of a few things in the governor’s office that I didn’t believe our citizens should have to pay for.

That luxury jet was over the top. I put it on eBay.

Emph is mine, She didn’t say she’d SOLD it on EBay, she said she PUT it on EBay. See, the sad fact is that not everything on Ebay, SELLS on Ebay.

I mean, I’ve seen some manufactured attacks, but this one really smells. Perhaps you’re trying to draw attention away from her actually doing the work of the people? Can you point to a Democrat in recent times doing anything of the sort… giving up taxpayer funded luxury and not acting like they’ve earned that luxury?
