For Sale: Plane, Never Used to Flee Terrorists

Alaska's new governor is using eBay to unload a private jet the previous governor bought on "state credit."

Homeland Security and the Alaska Legislature refused to buy ex-Gov Frank Murkowski (R-AK) a private jet that would fly him out of harms way in an emergency.

New Gov Sarah Palin (R-AK) has the 1984 Westwind II up for sale -- the current bid is $1.1 million -- and 77-cents.

With all of Alaska's wide open spaces, the interior seems a bit smallish. Wouldn't catch a Texan stepping off something this small at Love Field. (eBay, HT: Wonkette)
