So, how’s Sarah Palin paying for this grand tour anyway?
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.
Cue the national anthem: the conversation was cut short when a group of school children visiting the monument launched into “The Star Spangled Banner.”
SarahPAC.com does not currently offer any information about how much money has been spent on the tour. It does, however, feature a big green “Donate” button, inviting visitors to help fund Palin’s trip across the nation.
Adverisements on sites like Drudgereport.com also encourage Palin fans to donate.
