Sarah Palin weighed in on the race for the White House last night.

You were dying to hear from her, we know. You're so welcome.

Appearing on Fox News' Hannity, Palin, who hasn't endorsed a Republican candidate in the 2012 campaign, offered general praise for the field after Tuesday's Iowa caucus results, reserving the red meat for President Barack Obama.

"My concern is for the GOP candidate who wins this primary as they go forward to face the Obama presidential ticket machine and really the thuggery that is involved in that," Palin said, segueing to John McCain's endorsement of Mitt Romney.

"I believe that Senator McCain, in his endorsement of Mitt Romney, Senator McCain and I, we're the only ones in America who have ever had to face that Obama presidential ticket machine and all that it encompassed," she added.

"What it encompassed, you know, this unscrupulous, gimmicky scheme that it was."

"Senator McCain, evidently has chosen Mitt Romney as the one to be the most prepared to face this thuggery, this scheme that someone's going to have to face."

Is Romney the best prepared? Or the most electable? Do you wish Palin would have run for President herself? Or that she'd go away forever? Share your thoughts with us.

Julianne Moore’s transformation into Sarah Palin in the HBO film Game Change, set to premiere in March, is striking. Guess that's how you earn four Oscar nominations.

The 51-year-old actress stars opposite Ed Harris (as John McCain) and Woody Harrelson (adviser Steve Schmidt) in the film based on the 2010 book of the same name.

Game Change centers around the '08 presidential elections, following the U.S. Senator’s run and decision to select Palin, then governor of Alaska, as his running mate:

“In terms of research I did on the way campaigns are conducted, so much is about how do you get on the air, how do you get the most media attention," Moore said.

"How do you make the most noise. When in fact, what we’re all looking for is leadership, we don’t want noise. We want people who are going to take care of us.”

Wow. That's way too intelligent to come from an actual political figure.

The book Game Change chronicled the actions of both parties during the 2008 race, but based on the cast, the film looks to be centered primarily on the Republican side.

Will Sarah Palin still run for U.S. President?

In our opinion, there's no way that's happening, but it won't stop her from continuing to tease the masses to make sure we remember she's still around.

Asked by Fox Business Network about the likelihood that she'd become a candidate for the White House in 2012, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said it's not too late for "folks" to jump in ... including herself.

"Who knows what will happen in the future," she added.

Sarah Palin Speaking

Palin told Fox News she felt no enthusiasm for anyone in the current GOP field and that she needed to feel something before she would offer an endorsement.

She said in October that she wouldn't seek the GOP nomination, since she could be more effective helping the party by assisting others' bids to be elected.

The first votes are cast in the Republican primary season January 3 in Iowa. Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are currently leading polls in the state.

Should Sarah Palin run for President?

President Barack Obama pardoned a turkey named Liberty at the White House today. But, as you know, most birds are not so lucky, even when politicians are nearby.

Just a few years back, in fact, one committed a major party fowl.

In this classic video from Thanksgiving 2008, then-Governor Pain pardoned a turkey and gave an interview with a local news station ... during which things went awry.

Watch what happens in the background in the clip below:

Orlando Jones would like to make something very clear: he does not want anyone to kill Sarah Palin.

Heck, the actor does not want anyone to kill anyone, for that matter.

  • Orlando Jones Photo
  • Sarah Palin in NYC

Jones got himself in trouble last weekend for Tweeting, in response to the death of Moammar Gadhafi, "if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin (:”

That got the D-lister in trouble with even the most hardcore liberals and led him to write on Facebook last night:

“I pray that no harm comes to Governor Palin. I’m not a political pundit and I certainly don’t believe in murder. I think laughter is great medicine. I’d love to elevate the conversation but no one seems interested in that. So I’ll keep on going for the smiles even when I miss by a mile.”

Not really sure how an unfunny crack about murder is elevating any conversation, but, hey, we're no comedic pundits. It's nice to know for sure that Mr. Jones is anti-homicide.

The death of Moammar Gadhafi set off a string of celebrations throughout Libya, concerns among the international community ... and absurd comments on Twitter.

An instant, harmless classic: “Lunch with Gadhafi, cancelled.” - Steve Martin.

On Saturday, though, actor Orlando Jones went in a different direction:

“Libyan Rebels kill Gaddafi, if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin (:” wrote the star ... drawing a harsh rebuke.

  • Orlando Jones Pic
  • Sarah Palin Gets Fired Up!

Palin has not responded on Twitter to Jones’ remarks, but supporters have.

An account called Tennessee4Palin (@TN4P) wrote, “Why does @TheOrlandoJones think it’s funny to call for Sarah Palin to be murdered? #palin #liberaltolerance”

Jones' response, “No I don’t. I think it’s funny you are so upset about my inane tweet.”

Another user then tweeted at him, “You are obviously a big fat moron. How about someone talked about killing your mother or sister. Is that Funny-ha, ha?”

Jones' response to that one: “Yay! Name calling. I’m a moron that’s working on the big and fat part. Maybe you could buy me food & complete the trifecta (:”

What do you think? Did Orlando Jones go too far?

He admits he was "inane," yes, but telling people to KILL her? Really? And likening Palin to Gadhafi ... is that any different than Hank Williams' Obama-Hitler comparison?

Tell us what you think by commenting and voting below ...

Whose side are you on?

It was almost a foregone conclusion, but former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has announced, officially, that she will not enter the 2012 presidential race.

Palin's announcement comes one day after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie affirmed his decision not to jump in despite Republican leaders urging him to.

No leaders really wanted Palin to, but she's like a celebrity now, so the media still pays attention to her. Here's what she told supporters in a letter:

S 2 the P

"I believe I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office - from the nation's governors to congressional seats and the presidency."

"I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets, including in the race for president where candidates must embrace immediate action toward energy independence through domestic development of conventional energy sources, along with renewables."

"We must reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that kill American industry, and our candidates must always push to minimize government to strengthen and allow the private sector to create jobs."

"I apologize to those who are disappointed in this decision."

Anyone? Hello?

Sarah Palin says she didn't mean to insult Herm Cain ... Herb Cain ... Herman Cain ... aww shucks, whatever his name is in an interview on Fox News this week.

When she called the presidential candidate "the flavor of the week," Palin was criticized by supporters of the Georgia businessman and Republicans in general.

Well, Palin took the time to clarify that, saying she wasn't suggesting that Cain was about to fade, but merely commenting on her arch-nemesis, the press:

  • Herman Cain Picture
  • Sarah Pic

"What the media tends to do is propel this flavor of the week ... I am not saying that Herman Cain is the flavor of the week. I’m one of his biggest fans and I would never dismiss him or speak negatively about him."

"I’m saying the media always has to gin up some controversy and intrigue so viewers tune in and there’s a lot of competition in the media world in this quasi-reality show it seems that’s being created in the GOP primary."

"It’s just the nature of the beast right now and I think anybody would hard-pressed to argue against what I observed," Palin explained.

That's actually a fair point. But it's still funny because:

  1. Sarah Palin has actually been on a reality show.
  2. She profits from 24/7 media coverage, exploiting it to remain in the spotlight long after she lost any relevance and despite having no plans to run for office.

Levi Johnston is running his mouth again. This time, the occasion is his book tour (yes, we're serious) for Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs.

While there are no bombshells quite up there with a Sarah Palin-Glen Rice tryst, Levi does reveal more than Alaska's most famous family would ever want him to.

Some excerpts from a recent interview he gave about the book:

Levi Johnston Book Cover

On the prospect of a Palin presidency: "'President Palin' is a phrase that scares me. She is apparently only 5 percent behind Obama right now and that's frightening me. I'm figuring I might have to move to Canada if she wins."

On his baby mama's book: "I didn't read Bristol's book (Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far). I heard a lot of things out of it, as far as "I'm a gnat" and how I stole her virginity. Her book is just flat out lying, it's disgusting."

Sarah Palin's husband, Todd, denounced Joe McGinniss' new book about Alaska's most famous family as "disgusting lies, innuendo and smears" in a statement.

The former governor's camp is looking to discredit the biography - a racy, detailed, provocative tell-all, even as Palin gossip goes - which is due out next week.

Todd Palin slammed The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, specifically denying that his business partner Brad Hanson had an affair with his wife.

The part about Glen Rice nailing Sarah Palin, sadly, went unmentioned by Todd.

Todd Palin wrote of McGinniss:

"This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in next door to harass and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife." 

"His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo and smears. Even The New York Times called this book 'dated, petty,' and that it 'chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.'"

Hang on ... the Palins read The New York Times?
