The list of people who consider Sarah Palin influential just lost another person: Sarah Palin herself.
Speaking to Fox News' Greta Van Susteren, Palin lamented Time magazine's selection of President Obama as its 2012 Person of the Year, calling the list irrelevant. She laughed off the magazine's suggestion that the president is creating "a more perfect union," then added that she had been on the list. “That ought to tell you something right there regarding the credence that we should give Time magazine," she said.
We suspect many people agree with Palin and look forward to the time when the rest of her adherents at Fox do, too.
