Sarah Palin is coming out with a new book, just in time for the holidays.

A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas will be published in November.

It's about "reserving Jesus Christ in Christmas" and will "illustrate the reasons why the celebration of Jesus Christ's nativity is the centerpiece of [Palin's] faith."

Thumbs Up From Sarah Palin

"This will be a fun, festive, thought-provoking book," Palin promises.

The former Alaska Governor and V.P. candidate said in a statement:

Sarah Palin went on Fox News last night to blast President Barack Obama and specifically Time's choice of him as the magazine's 2012 Person of the Year.

No word if Palin voted for Kim Jong Un in the mag's reader poll.

Questioning President Obama's record in an election year beyond "driving us over a fiscal cliff," Palin said, "I think there is some irrelevancy there."

Palin was not alone in criticizing the pick, to be sure, or suggesting that Time is becoming increasingly more ridiculous. But who should've won instead?

Before the results were even official, Sarah Palin lamented the "catastrophic" setback to our economy that President Obama's reelection will undoubtedly cause.

She also rocked a new, lighter '80s-esque hairstyle. Lookin' good babe!

We're not sure what Palin's official job title is these days, or what she even does to pass the time since her political and reality TV days ended, but there she was.

Sarah Palin has taken a few moments away from writing her fitness book to comment on the recent scandal surrounding four American deaths in Libya.

In light of emails surfacing that make it apparent White House officials were told that a militant group took responsibility for the tragedy in Benghazi just two hours after it happened on September 11, Palin slammed President Obama for his role in what some consider a cover-up.

Sarah Palin, Center of Attention

Via Facebook, of course.

"Why the lies? Why the cover up? Why the dissembling about the cause of the murder of our ambassador on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil? We deserve answers to this. President Obama's shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end."

One of the political world's favorite rumors received fresh legs after both Sarah Palin and John McCain openly encouraged President Barack Obama to drop V.P. Joe Biden from the Democratic ticket in favor of Hillary Clinton.

McCain and Palin, the Republican 2008 ticket, both brought it up this week after Biden's controversial speech in Danville, Va., during which he told a crowd that a Mitt Romney presidency would "put y'all back in chains."

McCain, Palin, Obama

Although he predicted it would not happen, McCain said it would be wise for Obama to take the Vice President off the ticket and replace him with Clinton.

"I think it might be wise to do that but it's not going to happen obviously, for a whole variety of reasons," McCain said in an interview on Fox News.

"I'm not sure if I were [Clinton] I would want [that] ... I think her ambitions frankly are for 2016 and I'm not sure that would enhance that likelihood."

McCain's former running mate Palin has called openly for a Biden-Clinton swap, though she hopes it won't happen, as it would help Democrats win.

Of the "chains" quote controversy, McCain said Biden "continues to say things that are unacceptable in American politics," and "crossed the line" this time.

"Yet he seems to get away with it because it's always sort of a joke," McCain said.

The Biden-Clinton rumor surfaced earlier this year with Obama struggling mightily in polls and some suggesting it would reinvigorate his reelection bid.

What do you think? Should Obama drop Biden for Clinton?

Former Alaska Governor and V.P. nominee Sarah Palin will not speak at, or even attend, the Republican National Convention, she confirmed in a statement.

"This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I'm excited to hear them," Palin, the star of the 2008 convention, said.

"Everything I said at the 2008 convention about then-candidate (Barack) Obama still stands today," the 48-year-old professional celebrity added.

Sarah Palin Hair

Palin’s apparent decision to steer clear of the convention marks a stark contrast from four years ago, when she took the presidential race by storm.

Accepting the GOP Vice Presidential nomination, she electrified the party faithful and received widespread praise from previously skeptical pundits.

That also turned out to be her high water mark, however, and her absence from this year's event may indicate what a polarizing figure she's become.

Sources connected to both Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney's camps said she backed out of the RNC altogether after not being offered a speaking slot.

She said she supports Republican presidential candidate Romney and his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, but is focusing her efforts elsewhere.

Big Republican names such as Chris Christie, Condoleezza Rice, John McCain, Marco Rubio and even Rick Santorum will speak at the convention.

Romney will officially be nominated on August 30.

While hundreds of thousands partook in Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin repeated her support for the fast-food chain.

In a Fox News interview, the 2008 V.P. nominee defended Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's decision to publicly express anti-gay marriage views.

Moreover, she called backlash against Chick-fil-A an affront to free speech.

You Betcha

"Well, that calling for the boycott is a real - has a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights," Palin told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren.

"And the owner of the Chick-fil-A business had merely voiced his personal opinion about supporting traditional definition of marriage."

"One boy, one girl, falling in love, getting married."

"Having voiced support for kind of that cornerstone of all civilization and all religions since the beginning of time, he then basically [is] getting crucified."

Whichever side you're on in the gay marriage debate, Sarah Palin's interpretation of the 1st Amendment is interesting to say the least.

Dan Cathy certainly can express his opinions, but as the head of a popular company, has to expect repercussions from such statements.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney has some advice for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on choosing his V.P. running mate in August:

Don't pick another Sarah Palin.

In his first interview since receiving a heart transplant in March, Cheney told ABC News that John McCain's decision to pick Palin was "a mistake."

Cheney says he privately offered some advice to Romney and Beth Myers, who is leading Romney's search for a running mate, on the process.

Cheney would not comment on what he told Romney and Myers, but he was typically blunt in his assessment of McCain's decision to pick Palin.

"That one," Cheney said, "I don't think was well handled."

His reasoning is simple but profound: "The test to get on that list has to be, 'Is this person capable of being president of the United States?'"

"I like Governor Palin. I've met her. Know her. She - attractive candidate. But based on her background, she'd only been governor for, what, two years. I don't think she passed that test… of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake."

Former political figure/celeb Sarah Palin stopped by a lucky Chick-fil-A restaurant Friday to "support a great business" slash their anti-gay marriage views.

Palin Tweeted and Facebooked a picture of herself, former Alaska First Dude Todd Palin, at Chick-fil-A, looking happy to be at the Houston-area spot.

"Stopped by Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands to support a great business," is her caption, no doubt in support of Chick-fil-A's anti-gay marriage stance.

Sarah Palin, Chick-fil-A

To be clear, Chick-fil-A's founders have a right to their opinions, and by visiting there and posting the photo above, Sarah's exercising that same right.

Freedom of speech. Great stuff. But to be equally clear, Palin is quite obviously using it to imply her distaste for gay rights without overtly saying so.

Way to be cowardly - chicken if you will - in your bigotry, Sarah. At least pull a Mike Huckabee and declare a full-on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Ed Helms, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kardashian and others have called for a Chick-fil-A boycott, while Boston banned the restaurant from the city.

Where do you stand on the calls to boycott the chain?

Louis C.K. is far from apologetic about the profane Sarah Palin Tweets that caused major controversy and cost him his White House Correspondents' Dinner gig.

The Louis star was slated to host the annual D.C. event but bowed out amid the uproar sparked by harsh Tweets he wrote about the ex-Alaska Governor.

So, is he sorry? Mmmnot so much.

  • Sarah Palin Hair

"It's caused me some problems that I wrote s--t about her," C.K. admitted on the Today show Monday. "But I also... why not, man? I mean, what is she?"

"She's just a person. I don't think she's some sacred person."

"And, to me," he added of his Tweets, which were written drunk on a plane, "I was writing poems. It was like poetry to me, and I enjoyed writing them."

Poetry comprised of C-bombs, F-bombs and Sarah Palin jokes.

Asked if he would write the same things again, C.K. replied:

"Yeah, I probably would, I think so. It still makes me laugh a little bit, the stuff that I wrote, when I think about it ... I actually thought it was well-written."

Hey, might as well own it. The man does not mince words.
