Sarah Palin can't hunt? Former pals talk turkey in Vanity Fair
Vanity Fair's Michael Gross unsheathed his claws and ripped into former VP candidate/Alaskan guv Sarah Palin in his new Vanity Fair piece.
According to Gross's Palin profile, which includes interviews with former Palin pals no longer afraid to talk, Sarah has gone from a small-town conservative hockey mom to a ruthless, tyrannical, deceptive, money and media-obsessed madwoman.
Here are some interesting excerpts from Gross's lengthy piece:
Populist icon Sarah Palin is a terrible tipper:
Of the many famous people who have stayed at the Hyatt in Wichita (Cher, Reba McEntire, Neil Young), Sarah Palin ranks as the all-time worst tipper: $5 for seven bags. But the bellhops had it good in Kansas, compared with the bellman at another midwestern hotel who waited up until past midnight for Palin and her entourage to check in--and then got no tip at all for 10 bags. He was stiffed again at checkout time. The same went for the maids who cleaned Palin's rooms in both places--no tip whatsoever."
Sarah Palin has a terrible temper:
"One friend of the Palins' remembers an argument between Sarah and Todd: "They took all the canned goods out of the pantry, then proceeded to throw them at each other. By the time they got done, the stainless-steel fridge looked like it had got shot up with a shotgun. Todd said, 'I don't know why I even waste my time trying to get nice things for you if you're just going to ruin them.' " This friend adds, "As soon as she enters her property and the door closes, even the insects in that house cringe. She has a horrible temper, but she has gotten away with it because she is a pretty woman."
Her frontier babe rep is bull.
"This whole hunter thing, for Sarah? That is the biggest fallacy," says one longtime friend of the family. "That woman has never hunted. The picture of her with the caribou she says she shot? She got out of the R.V. to pose for a picture. She never helps with the fishing either. It's all a joke."
OK, so it's not really all that damning or all that surprising. Of far more concern is her Twitter power and secret political aspirations. But you'll have to read the whole piece for that information.
