(Newser) – Sarah Palin and John McCain have officially cast their ballots, but one of them is being mysteriously coy about its contents. “I am also exercising my right to privacy,” she told reporters outside her Wasilla polling place. “And I don't have to tell anybody who I vote for. Nobody does. And that's really cool about America, also.”

Palin talked to reporters at length, according to Politico, ignoring pleas from her staff to wrap it up. McCain by contrast ignored a crush of media as he cast his ballot in Phoenix, refusing to answer questions. He intends to spend the rest of the day campaigning, before settling into the Phoenix luxury resort where he got married to watch the results come in.
