Palin didnt know Africa is a continentNovember 7th, 2008 - 11:31 am ICT by ANI
Lahore , Nov 7 (ANI): Alaska Governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who attracted much flak during the run up to the just concluded presidential election because of lack of foreign affairs experience, did not know that Africa was a continent, a Fox News correspondent has revealed.
Quoting unnamed McCain aides as saying, the correspondent who extensively covered the election, said that she could not name all three countries in the North American Free Trade Agreement (the US, Canada and Mexico) and declined to prepare for her now infamous Katie Couric interview.
McCain aides also allegedly claimed Palin threw tantrums over bad press reviews and was a shopaholic.
The TV correspondent also divulged that Randy Sheunemann, the chief foreign policy adviser for Republican presidential candidate John McCain, was fired late in the campaign for allegedly leaking details of the differences between McCain and Palin.
Other reports claimed that Palin spent thousands more on a shopping spree at high-end department stores than the campaign had expected. (ANI)
