Appearing on Fox last night, Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity a heartwarming story of how she asked her teenage daughters for their opinion before accepting the vp offer.
'So ask the girls what they thought and they’re like, ‘Absolutely, let’s do this, Mom,’’ Palin recounted of her daughters, Bristol and Willow.
Yet, according to the campaign-provided timeline of how Palin's selection came about, her kids only found out the big news after they were spirited from Alaska to Ohio for the announcement.
Asked about the discrepancy, Palin spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said: 'She asked the girls to vote once they arrived in Ohio.'
When it was noted that, that would have been after the decision had already been made, Schmitt said Palin was still in Arizona at the time.
This, of course, doesn't change the fact that the children were already in Ohio for the express purpose of announcing he news.
