That Bird Don't Fly on eBay

One of the mainstay stories which supposedly shows us just how decisive and how frugal Sarah Palin can be is the one touted at the recent convention - you know the one - the "I put the plane on eBay" story. The one retold by John Mccain while on the road in Cedarburg, Wisconsin today when he said, "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."

Great story - until you find out that the plane didn't sell on eBay, it was given to a private broker who sold it at a $600,000 loss....and the dude who bought it is now seeking another $50,000 from the state for unexpected maintenance issues.
