You must remember the story. It was so sweet & wonderful. Sarah tells how she asked her kids for a vote on whether or not she should accept the nomination for VP from McCain.
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.

And Todd tells this story in his interview with Greta Van Sustern;
VAN SUSTEREN: So when did you leave Alaska with the three?
PALIN: It was a Thursday afternoon.
VAN SUSTEREN: Headed for where directly? You went to Ohio?
PALIN: We didn't know where we were going, but that's where we ended up.
VAN SUSTEREN: I mean, you were just told you were going to be picked up and you're going someplace.
VAN SUSTEREN: And so -- and your kids didn't say, you know, Dad, at some point, maybe you ought to tell us where we're going?
PALIN: Well, I kind of fended it off for a while. But you know, we popped in down at Ohio and ran into Sarah, and then, you know, everybody kind of knew why we were there then.
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, so -- so didn't your kids think it was odd that you were on a -- you were on a private plane?
VAN SUSTEREN: They didn't think that was weird, like...
PALIN: No, we kind of spilled the beans a little bit, but not all the details.
VAN SUSTEREN: And none of them...
PALIN: I mean, prior to sitting on that plane.
VAN SUSTEREN: And so when did the kids first finally get the official word?
PALIN: When we got to Ohio.
VAN SUSTEREN: Not until then.
PALIN: Yes. The official word, yes.
VAN SUSTEREN: Because that's a long flight between here and Ohio, where your kids are sitting there. They've been -- their cell phones have been taken away. They think they're going to some 20th anniversary party. Dad's acting a little weird at that point, don't you think?
Todd tells of how the kids found out about Sarah's being chosen for the VP nomination
So this is the story they tell the world, and yet in the recently released book, "Sarah From Alaska", author Shushannah Walshe tells a much different story about how the Palin children found out about their mothers nomination. She states quite deliberately that Sarah Palin did not tell her children, rather it was Steve Schmidt who told the kids. She goes even further saying that the story that Sarah told about asking her kids to vote on the matter might have happened, but even if it did, it was after she had already accepted the job from McCain.
Why does it matter? It matters because it shows a continued pattern of deception and lies told by Sarah Palin to the American people, and it is just another brick in the wall of her many lies that are slowly being revealed to the nation.
