Spend and Spend

Well, good ole Sarah Palin really knows how to get to core Rerpublicans values.

She has the whole God thing going on, a blind acceptance of Iraq and, apparantly, no knowledge of science and wants to lower taxes.

If that weren't enough, she embraces the core Republican value.

Spend on pet projects and bill it to the taxpayers. Here are the per diem charges:

Palin: $16,000ish
Her Husband: $43,000ish
Her kids" $25,000ish

$85,000 in personal expenses for someone who makes $125,000 a year. In her defense, how the hell does someone raise a family of 6 on a measly $125,000?

The family also charged for flights around the state, including trips to Alaska events such as the start of the Iditarod dog-sled race and the Iron Dog snowmobile race, a contest that Todd Palin won. She wrote some form of "Lodging -- own residence" or "Lodging -- Wasilla residence" more than 30 times at the same time she took a per diem, according to the reports. In two dozen undated amendments to the reports, the governor deleted the reference to staying in her home but still charged the per diem.
