Truth finds its grave in the grossly exaggerated Sarah Palin story. Keith Olbermann takes the moose by the horns. Highlights include:
- The bridge to nowhere was part of her gubernatorial platform.
- The jet did not sell on ebay as she said. It was sold through an aviation broker.
- It did not sell for a profit:
It was sold to a businessman from Valdez named Larry Reynolds, who paid $2.1 million for the jet, shy of the original $2.7 million purchase price, according to contemporaneous news reports.”
- The chef was not fired as implied in Palin’s acceptance speech, but reassigned as a “constituents relations assistant” who cooked.
