Morning Poll: Do You Buy Sarah Palin's Reason for Purchasing Scottsdale Home?
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has refused to answer any reporters' questions about a home she was rumored to have recently bought in Scottsdale. But Fox News' Greta Van Susteren apparently isn't any reporter.
Despite the former vice presidential candidate's recent media silence, Van Susteren scored 20 minutes with Palin last night, during which, she copped to purchasing the Scottsdale home.
The reason Palin gave she and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer's mutual BFFF is as follows:
"No I haven't moved from Alaska but Safari Investments has invested in property in Arizona," she said, adding that "we are a part of" Safari Investments. The reason for the purchase? As Alaskans, she and the rest of the Palin clan "like to thaw out once in a while."
Quite a yarn.

Palin's daughter Bristol already owns a home in Arizona, so if the Palin gang was in need of a place to "thaw out," there's no reason the "fiscally Conservative" "mama grizzly" couldn't pull out the futon at her daughter's place, rather than blow $1.69 million on her own home.
In reality, and in our humble opinion, Palin's plotting something -- be it a presidential run she's rumored to be planning to base out of Arizona, or throwing her hat in the ring to run for the Senate seat getting vacated by Senator Jon Kyl.
But we want to know what you think: do you buy the Palin-ator's reason for buying a house in Scottsdale?
