London, Sept 6 (ANI): Sarah Palin might splurge 3000 dollars out of her campaign funds on underwear for the whole family, but the ex-vice presidential candidate is one miserly tipper.
"The number and range of items purchased for the entire Palin family - more than 400 in total - is mind-boggling. For Sarah, the campaign bought roughly $3,000 [#1,940] worth of underwear (including many Spanx girdles)," The Guardian quoted Vanity Fair as saying.
But what one didn't expect in Palin is a mean tipper.
"Of the many famous people who have stayed at the Hyatt in Wichita (Cher, Reba McEntire, Neil Young), Palin ranks as the all-time worst tipper: $5 for seven bags," wrote Vanity Fair.
Not just that, even her Facebook and Twitter accounts seem to be ghost written.
The October issue of the magazine also revealed how Palin seemed to be unaware of who Margaret Thatcher was, back in 2008.
"When John McCain's aides discovered that Alaska-size gaps existed in Palin's general knowledge (among those previously unreported: she had no idea who Margaret Thatcher was), they from time to time would give her some books to read in hopes of improving the candidate's learning curve," the magazine revealed.
As for her hunting trips, one long-time friend of the family disclosed: "That is the biggest fallacy. That woman has never hunted. The picture of her with the caribou she says she shot? She got out of the RV to pose for a picture."
In her response to the article, Palin said: "Those who are impotent and limp and gutless and they go on their anonymous - sources that are anonymous - and impotent, limp and gutless reporters take anonymous sources and cite them as being factual references." (ANI)
