Since I've been home, i've been enjoying my last few days with a television and have been taking cnn in through an i.v. palin and mccain have been under my scrutiny during their appearances on everything from the view to hardball to interviews with charles gibson. let me just say that
I don't understand how "the most popular governor in the country" can also be the most publicly dishonest governor in the country.
Just to clarify some popular topics:
1. Palin said "[Alaska] produces nearly 20% of the u.s. domestic supply of energy" (gibson interview) - she thinks that makes her an expert on energy (FALSE)
True-- Alaska's share of domestic energy production is about 3.5%.
2. Palin said (in seven speeches which made my ears bleed) she told congress "Thanks but no thanks to that bridge to nowhere, if we wanted a bridge we would build it ourselves" HAha WHATTT! She supported that bridge THEN congress killed the project THEN she took the 2_ _ million from congress and spent 23!!!!million to build a road that led to where that bridge would have been. Call me crazy but...I think she's crazy.
3. Palin implied that she sold her private jet on ebay
She put her jet up on ebay three times and then the republican party came in and sold it at a loss.
4. Palin said she fired the private chef at the governor's mansion again FALSE.
The republican party reassigned the chef to be a campaign staffer somewhere
