Palin Watch, Day 12

Hey, remember when She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named was all like "I'm a fiscal conservative!  Vote for me!"  Well, it turns out that, once again, she's lying.

During her first 19 months as governor (of the 47th largest state out of 50), Palin billed taxpayers for 312 nights spent in her own home.  This was charged to an allowance that is supposed to cover things like meals and expenses that pile up while she is on official state business.  And let's be real here, people: there was no official "state business" occurring during those 312 nights at Palin's home in Wasilla - unless, of course, you count the conception of baby Trig and her presumed discovery that Bristol was pregnant.  Lord knows she's made them campaign business thus far.
