The American Spectator's Robert Stacy McCain reported that Sarah Palin will decide whether she's running for president "within a week," as campaign services venders have been told she's going to give them the final word soon. Palin slapped down the the post within the hour, tweeting, "Really? Hmm, guess they forgot to inform me what I'm 'expected to do' next wk."
@C4Palin, the Twitter feed started by Palin's web guru Rebecca Mansour, mocked the report, saying, "FYI: When @SarahPalinUSA does decide decide to announce @C4Palin will get the scoop," followed by, "The earlier message we sent out about announcement scoop, was a tongue & cheek message to all anonymous sources. Quit making things up!"
McCain responded in a huff, "OK, fine, governor, but I was reporting what my source had been told. Has my source been misinformed?"
