The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan (March 20, 2009) - Palin's Latest Posture:

Her latest gambit to keep national attention is to turn down a third of her state's stimulus money. Of course, she wouldn't be Palin if she hadn't already lied about it, claiming at first she was refusing half the money, then being forced to acknowledge she was actually only refusing a third. Then this little nugget of joy:

The biggest single chunk of money Palin is turning down is about $170 million for education, including money that would go for programs to help economically disadvantaged and special needs students.

After this latest stunt, the legislature may over-rule her on a bunch of it.
