Because they just can't find anything else to bitch about and because they are so upset that such a strong woman with a set of standards who is by the way actually likeable and more in tune with the common folks than oh say their choice for VP (that being Hillary perhaps?), they're still trying to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin. Oh hell who doesn't have skeletons?
First it was her pregnant teenage daughter, then it was her husband's DUI when he was 21, now it's the non-issue that the luxury jet she spoke about in her speech, in which she put on EBAY, never actually sold on EBAY, although McCain had made a statement in passing that it did.
In reality, the jet was placed on Ebay but did not sell, so they pulled it off Ebay, sold it elsewhere. No, no profit was made off of it but if you factor in the depreciation, it might have just made a profit or at least come out even. What is being overlooked by some is the fact that the Governor sold the jet as part of a mucher larger effort to get rid of corruption and unnecessary spending.
And as to McCain's remarks, who knows why he said it was sold on Ebay? Maybe he figured it was and did make a profit?
The people who are pulling this crap out of a hat must be so desperate.
