The PayPal, you see, she could not handle a payment of $US1.1 million. That's why this Xbox 360 said to be autographed by Bayonetta Alaska's ex-governor was pulled from eBay. Not because eBay items at this price are usually b.s.
Seller David Morrill is hell-bent on getting his seven-figures for this Palin-autographed piece of hardware. After it was taken down in August, everyone said fake-fake-fakety-fake. Morrill, on the new listing, says it was taken down thanks to an "insufficient description of the item or no photos of the item", and then because "PayPal is unable to process a payment of this size". Which actually is good to know about PayPal.
So Morrill is back at it with a new payment processor. The console has been re-listed and is up for auction until Oct. 10, at a minimum bid of $US1.1 million, which is upland territory usually handled by Christie's or Sotheby's.
As we said in August, this might be expecting a little much. $US1.1 million would be a record for anything signed by a person still living at the time of its sale. Never mind this is the signature of a political one-hit wonder who just finished up a gruelling four months writing her memoir. Hell, I'm not even sure the advance on her memoir rises to the $US1.1 million mark.
