Everyone's favorite failed politician might attempt a comeback next year. In an interview with the constantly confused Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin said she was considering a run against Alaskan Senator Mark Begich, a Democrat, in the 2014 election.

"I've considered it because people have requested me [to] consider it," Palin told Hannity on his radio show. "I'm still waiting to see what the lineup will be. And hoping there will be some new blood, new energy. Not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state that come from political families."

"Sen. Mark Begich has got to be replaced," she continued. "He had not done what he had promised to do for the people of Alaska, which is to represent what it is the nation needs in terms of energy development. Because he's on the wrong side of the aisle, he has to go along to get along with his Democrat leadership, and that's a shame. That's a waste of opportunity for our nation."

Right. If she decides not to run, or quits half-way through again, Palin will have no trouble keeping busy. She's back as a (cheaper) contributor at Fox News and, having finished her fitness book, is hard at work at another important literary endeavor:

"I'm writing a book about Christmas and pushing back on the politically correct who have tried to take Christ out of Christmas ... at the same time a very festive and happy and jolly book about tradition and recipes and fun things about Christmas!"
