    Whoever is in charge of this part of the Palindrome Experiment should be publically flogged for stupidity.

    I can't post it now, but one of her new duds is a really nice scarf with a
    Democratic Donkey on it.

    Next interview question: Governor Palin do you know what animal represents the Repuclican Party? Answer: Well you betcha. It's the jackal or the hyena chasing a donkey which is being shot at from a helicopter.

    I wonder if Palin will claim this as income, which I believe she must, on her tax return?

    :lol:

    now that would be a real kicker! 30% of 150k is 45 grand in taxes! :eek:

    not likely though, not if they donated them after the campaign...?

    Except they wouldn't be worth as much, being used, so she'd still owe something. I knew a guy that won a car and had to sell it to pay the taxes he owed on his prize.

    Of course she could auction them off on ebay, make a profit, and donate it all to charity.

    good point, they would be worth only 10 cents on the dollar as a write off if used and donated...

    I bet she'd have good luck auctioning them though.
