How is Sarah Palin Paying for Bus Tour?

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- The former governor of Alaska got a little testy with ABC News Wednesday when asked how she was financing her "One Nation Tour" through the Northeast.

During a stopover at the Statue of Liberty, Sarah Palin responded that she was paying for the tour through her political action committee website, SarahPAC, and that the bus in which she and her family are riding is "our own personal motor home that we've had in Alaska."

Palin, who was Republican John McCain's running mate in the 2008 national election, became visibly annoyed when asked how much the tour has cost during it first four days.

She told ABC News, "Check  I don't know why in the world you would ask a question like that.  I'm just thinking about America and our foundations and our freedoms and our opportunities.  Why would you ask something..."

When told she often speaks about how much the federal government is spending, Palin responded, "What does our economy have to do with how much we're -- I'm not asking you to pay for a penny of this trip."

A check of revealed nothing about how much the trip is costing or how much Palin's supporters have donated so she and her family can travel.
