Jet Lie

John McCain on Sarah Palin:

She took the luxury jet that was acquired by her predecessor, and sold it on eBay — and made a profit!

The truth:

In fact, the jet did not sell on eBay. It was sold to a businessman from Valdez named Larry Reynolds, who paid $2.1 million for the plane — shy of the $2.7 million purchase price — according to news reports at the time. Reynolds contributed to Palin’s campaign in 2006.

It’s just a hunch, but you’re going to hear a lot more of the first than you are of the second.
