In her convention speech on Wednesday, Sarah Palin wowed the delegates by telling them she had taken her predecessor’s taxpayer-funded luxury jet and sold it on eBay.
Oh, wait … she said she “put it on eBay.”
Big difference, as it turns out, because it didn’t sell, and she eventually turned it over to a private broker, who unloaded it at a loss. So on top of everything else, it appears that we also have to parse every word she says.
No such problem with John McCain, who bragged the other day that Palin “sold it on eBay — made a profit.” That’s just wrong.
