The Grizzled Mama bares her teeth in response to question about who is financing her Wasilla-billy road trip. Update!
Courtesy of ABC News:
At the Statue of Liberty today, ABC News asked the former Alaska governor how much her tour has cost so far and how she's paying for it.
"How am I paying for it? SarahPAC," she said, adding that she's traveling in "our own personal motor home that we've had in Alaska."
Palin didn't answer when asked how long she's owned the bus that's adorned with the Constitution and a larger-than-life version of her signature. When asked, twice, how much her "One Nation Tour" has cost four days into the trip, she got visibly irritated.
"Check SarahPAC.com," she said. "I don't know why in the world you would ask a question like that. I'm just thinking about America and our foundations and our freedoms and our opportunities. Why would you ask something ..."
ABC News pointed out that she often talks about the economy and how much money we're spending.
"What does our economy have to do with how much we're -- I'm not asking you to pay for a penny of this trip," she said.
"I'm not asking YOU to pay a penny of this trip! I am only demanding that the most ignorant people on the planet, who are so delusional that they still believe I could be President, pay for this trip!"
Isn't it a crime to take advantage of people with a diminished capacity?
Speaking of things that make Palin pissy, I do believe that the State of Alaska has officially run out of excuses for not releasing her e-mails. Of course as predicted, the important ones will never see the light of day.
The state is about to release more than 24,000 pages of Sarah Palin's emails from her time as governor. But officials are also going to withhold another 2,415 pages the state deems privileged, personal or otherwise exempt from Alaska's disclosure laws.
Screw these other 24,000 e-mails! I only want to see the 2,415 they WON'T release!
Update: It looks like somebody fixed the message on Palin's bus for her. Now it is MUCH more accurate!
Oh yeah, she is definitely winning people over with this tour! Totally!
