One of my favorite lines from Sarah Palin's speech on Wednesday was that she sold the Alaska governor's personal jet on eBay.
Turns out it's not true.
Maybe it's similar to when you say you bought Kleenex ... when you just bought some generic brand tissues. Or you say you Googled something, when really you used Yahoo or Ask Jeeves or something.
I still think it was a good line ... and I still would have used it if I were her.
