Sarah Palin: Despite The ‘Haters’ I May Run For Office Again

Sarah Palin addressed her "haters" during an appearance on the Fox Business Network.

Sarah Palin said on Tuesday that despite the “haters,” she may consider another run for political office.

Host Stuart Varney asked Palin during an appearance on the Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.” about what he described as the “extraordinary” amount of “hatred” directed at her.

“Bless their hearts, those, uh, those haters out there,” Palin said. “They don’t understand that it, it invigorates me. It wants me to get out there and defend, uh, the innocent. It makes me want to work so hard for justice in this country.”

“So, hey, the more they’re pouring on, the more I’m gonna bug the crap out of them by being out there with a voice, with a message, hopefully running for office in the future, too,” Palin continued.

Varney then asked her about the scrutiny she and her family faced from people like Carol Costello, who last week mocked a police tape of her daughter Bristol Palin, taken after a brawl in which the Palins were involved.

Palin noted that there are people out there who have it “a heck of a lot harder than the Palins do” before launching into a rant against “liberals.”

“They’re out there playing the politics of personal destruction,” Palin said. “They do want to destroy personally those whom they disagree with. They’re very, very intolerant of those who maybe hold opposing views.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
