Just one more half-truth out of Sarah Palin's mouth: TV news reports are going a little further, saying that the plane was bought by someone who had contributed to her campaign. Now okay, I know: the plane got sold, whether it was on eBay or not. What I object to is the misleading wording, as well as the implication that the plane was a total waste of money. Not as efficient as alternate methods, perhaps, but hardly as bad as the image she gave. And thanks to atszyman for this Slate article which goes even further in debunking her image and bringing her back down to Earth.
