    Palin Resignation Costs Alaska

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Early estimates put the cost of Sarah Palin's midterm resignation as Alaska governor at a minimum of $40,000, not including a special legislative session partly linked to her departure.
    The preliminary figures obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request show it cost the state almost $14,100 for the July 26 swearing-in ceremony of new Gov. Sean Parnell.


    The price tag for moving Palin – the former GOP vice presidential candidate – and her family from the governor's mansion in Juneau amounted to roughly $3,328.


    Palin's spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton, says suggesting the resignation cost the state is "incredibly misleading." She says the resignation ceremony was added to a previously scheduled governor's picnic and was organized by the lieutenant governor's office.


    The tally doesn't include the estimated $100,000 it cost for a one-day special session last month in which lawmakers approved Palin's pick to replace Parnell as lieutenant governor and overrode her veto of federal stimulus funds intended for energy efficiency projects.

    Imagine how much she would cost this country if she became president? She makes Bush and McCain seem like Archimedes and Einstein.

    I think Sarah Palin is the literal interpretation of the Devil Wears Prada or whatever other expensive clothes she got.

    It goes nearly 15,000 or a swearing in ceramony????

    Seriously, this has much more to do with the ludicrous spending of government than Palin.

    I could do a swearing in ceramony for practically nothing.
