How Palin's Dad Found Out
Not long before the rest of us.
Sarah Palin's father found out about his daughter's decision not to run for president just before she made her official announcement. But he had an inkling when he saw on the website of the Iron Dog—which bills itself as the world's longest snowmobile race—that Todd was signed up for 2012. "I'm glad they made a decision," Jim Palin says. "It's a good decision. The family fully supports it and any actions they decide on in the future.I know they will remain active in trying to turn things in this country around."
