Sarah Palin Doesn’t Think Obama Should Be TIME’s Person Of The Year Either

We have something in common with Sarah Palin: after we admitted yesterday that we had been rooting for someone other than President Obama to be TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year”, the former Alaskan governor took to Fox News to bash Obama’s selection herself.
In an interview with Greta Van Susteren, Palin, who has been listed twice as one of the “100 Most Influential People,” dismissed TIME’s annual honor with a bit of self-deprecation thrown in:
TIME Magazine, I think there’s some irrelevancy there to tell you the truth. Consider their list of the most influential people in the country and in the world, some who have made the list — yours truly, that ought to tell you something right there regarding the credence we should give TIME magazine and their list of people.
TIME’s managing editor Richard Stengel wrote the President was selected for “forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.” Palin contested these claims, calling them “silly words.” “What has he done to unify and make our nation a more perfect union,” she asked. “For the life of me, I don’t know.” Palin did not say who she thought deserved the nomination.
