"...then pushing for $14.7 million in bonds to build a sports complex..."
Speculation is abound. Her and Todd's 4,000 square foot house was built at the same time (though Todd say he built that by himself). Interestingly the lumber supplier of the complex is also Todd's snowmobile sponsor. Hmmm.

She doesn't have to spend Alaska's money, she took the $230 million from the Bridge to Nowhere and is on a shopping spree! How about the $ she saved by not paying for the rape exam kits - now thats what I'm talkin about! Really brilliant economic discipline, that.

What hit-men are the AP hiring to write these?
"Soon after taking office, Palin made a splash selling off the state jet. She's pointed to that step to demonstrate that she isn't beholden to the trappings of office. Still, it didn't save the state money. The state had bought the jet for $2.7 million—and when no one bid for it on eBay, the state eventually hired an aircraft broker to unload it for $2.1 million."
What, so there are no operating costs for a private jet? No fuel, no maintenance, no pilots, no insurance, no storage space?
It's completely ERRONEOUS to say that "it didn't save the state money" simply because a used jet sells for less than a new one.
The reporter is either dishonest, or a dolt.
