Sourced from the FY budgets.
I was wrong, it was 60%, not 80%.

I would choose a line but I don't know if any of them were actually hers. She said them but, don't forget , she has just spent a week being "briefed" by party confidantes so that she wouldn't say anything that the dems could go after and she had a jazzy speech to read full of quotable one-liners.
yes, not at all like barack or biden, eh?
so, you suppose those two simply 'winged it'?
how is careful preparation suddenly a sign of insincerity?
the campaigns are a very big deal and communication is no accident, it must be skillfully crafted, whether genuine or not.
the gop's communications were superb and the dem's speeches really can't compare, they're all available for anyone to freely review, look 'em up.

I'm not so sure on that one. It's my understanding that the special needs funding was previously grouped with other funding, and under Palin she divided the sum into separate lines on the budget; so while it appears that the former budget line was slashed by 62%, there was a new category added where the funding was still allocated.
Basically it went from...
Line X: approx. 8k
Line X: approx 3k
Line Y: approx 5k
