Claim: Name spelling nixed Palin X-Box

A U.S. video game blogger has a theory about why a Sarah Palin-signed Xbox 360 was pulled from an eBay auction -- her first name appears to be misspelled.

Blogger Game Guy said the Xbox, which was purportedly signed by the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate during a picnic before she announced her resignation as governor July 3, seems to lack the final h in the politician's first name, making it the alternate spelling Sara, the St. Louis (Mo.) Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday.

The Xbox 360 had been listed for $1.1 million on eBay as item No. 300335581705 with only one bid before it was pulled for unexplained reasons.
