Sarah Palin did not sell Jet on EBAY- LIED AGAIN!

Another bullshit lie from the Sarah apPALINg

From CNN Correspondent Christine Romans

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CNN) — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin bolstered her fiscal-conservative credentials early in her term by putting her predecessor's state jet up for auction online.

"That luxury jet was over the top," she told Republican National Convention delegates when she accepted the party's vice presidential nomination Wednesday night. "I put it on eBay."

Since Palin was chosen as Arizona Sen. John McCain's running mate last week, the story has become a cornerstone of the Republican effort to paint Palin as a reformer who took on her own party establishment.

"How many saw her speech a couple of nights ago? Wasn't it fabulous?" McCain said Friday during a campaign stop in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. "You know what I enjoyed the most? She took the luxury jet that was purchased by her predecessor and sold it on eBay — and made a profit."

But it turns out the twin-engine Westwind II was a tough sell on the Web — and the state eventually pulled it offline and sold it through an ordinary brick-and-mortar brokerage, for a loss, a spokeswoman said Friday.

"Governor Palin has been correct in saying that she put the plane on eBay," McCain campaign spokeswoman Maria Comella told CNN. "They did end up selling it for $2.1 million. but not on eBay."

Palin's predecessor, Frank Murkowski, bought the jet for $2.7 million in 2005. The following year, Palin unseated Murkowski in the state's Republican primary and became governor: Upon taking office, she wanted to unload what former aide Meg Stapleton called "a symbol of corruption."

Stapleton told CNN that Murkowski paid too much for the jet, and that it was costing taxpayers money just sitting in the hangar.

"Eventually you had to concede and say, 'How often are we going to pay these bills and waste more state dollars?' " she said.

When putting it on eBay failed, aircraft broker Rob Heckmann was called in to sell the jet. Businessman Larry Reynolds bought the five-passenger jet for sold for $2.1 million. And Reynolds is now seeking another $50,000 from the state for unexpected maintenance issues with the aircraft.

She didn't say she sold it on Ebay, she said she put it on Ebay

Hairy Kerry - She didn't say she sold it on Ebay, she said she put it on Ebay
Sure seems like it, why did the original poster lie? 

When she said that, I thought that Ebay must have been thrilled to get free advertised to millions of people.

If people read this story (very few will), Ebay might not look so hot.

So Ebay still wins big.

FAIL!

her statement is factual. GRASPING. STRAWS.

 Bullshitting that she put it on Ebay?

another worthless thread. thank you

Effeminate liberals are so petty and childish.

The guy they sold it to just happened to be a campaign contributor to the Republican party. Its in the WashPost.

 Doesn't seem very odd that a guy who can afford a jet would also be someone who contributes to one of or both political parties.

I wouldn't say she really lied because she did just say she "put it on ebay" and not "sold it on ebay" (even though i thought it was kinda implied she sold it there).......the real liar is McCain for saying that she not only sold it on ebay but also made a profit.   That's two lies.

i could say i put my foot in your ass, and it wouldn't mean that i sold my foot in your ass, right?

"How many saw her speech a couple of nights ago? Wasn't it fabulous?" McCain said Friday during a campaign stop in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. "You know what I enjoyed the most? She took the luxury jet that was purchased by her predecessor and sold it on eBay — and made a profit."

 I'm not voting for her and Mccain but far be it for me to be one sided on this aspect. Exactly what does this have to do with the presidential race again? What does Obama's grandfather once removed who once called someone a "crafty jew" have to do with anything.



The presidential race has turned into a race for non topics of problems occuring in our country. Frankly I don't give two shits if her kid has down syndrome or her other girl is having a baby. Doesn't mean shit.



God forbid anyone ask any important questions this election or for christ sakes ask maybe questions that are relevent to running the country.




This isn't Obama's grandfather. This is Palin and McCain directly trying to create a false image for Americans. You would think 8 years of Bush's B.S. would be enough.

the right has had their fingers in their ears for a long time. As long as the rich are getting richer, they don;t care what kinda crazies they have to get in bed with.
