(CNNSources close to John McCain say Sarah Palin was denied a chance to speak at McCain's concession address.) — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called former aides of Sen. John McCain “jerks” for circulating unflattering stories about her since the Republican ticket lost its bid for the White House Tuesday.

The stories, which have been attributed to unnamed sources within the McCain campaign, include claims that Palin did not know Africa was a continent instead of a country, or which countries are part of the North American Free Trade Agreement, despite touting her familiarity with neighboring Canada.
