(Newser) – “I eat, therefore I hunt,” Sarah Palin tells Esquire in a wide-ranging interview, dishing on motherhood, how to make good mooseburger chili, and life as a supposed MILF: “If only people could see me as I come in from a run early in the morning without a trough full of makeup on, I think that they’d have a different opinion.”

Palin’s likes include Carmex lip balm—“I’m addicted to Carmex”—and her kids. Her dislikes include “anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie,” and “when someone says, ‘I love you, you’re perfect the way y’are, now let me change you.’ And I'm sure Sen. McCain had to struggle with some of that, maybe early on in his campaign.”
