Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is setting the record straight about a new controversy she's calling "Boob-gate!"
"Breast implants: Did you have them or not?" FOX News' Greta Van Susteren asked the ex-governor of Alaska during an interview. "Because that's all over the Internet about you, and mainstream media."
"No, I have not had implants," Palin went on to respond. "I think a report like that is about as real and truthful as those reports that Todd and I are divorcing or that I bought a place in the Hamptons or that Trig is not my own child."
Palin suggested that the "bored, idle" individuals fueling the "Boob-gate" controversy "need to perhaps need to grab a shovel, go down to the Gulf, volunteer to help, clean up and save a whale or something."
"To be judged on, or to be talked about, on appearance -- say, chest size -- it makes me wear layers," she continued. "It makes me have to waste time figuring out, 'What am I gonna wear' so that nobody will look in an area that I don't need them to look at. I want them to hear what it is that I'm saying."
