Palin recently spoke to the Anchorage Daily News and stated that she and John McCain lost because the Republican ticket “represented too much of the status quo.”

She continued by saying that it was President George W. Bush's administration that ruined the the GOP brand, adding that it was "amazing" the McCain camp did as well as they did.

Palin says, “I think the Republican ticket represented too much of the status quo, too much of what had gone on in these last eight years, that Americans were kind of shaking their heads like going, wait a minute, how did we run up a $10 trillion debt in a Republican administration? How have there been blunders with war strategy under a Republican administration?”

And the intelligent Palin added, “If we’re talking change, we want to get far away from what it was that the present administration represented, and that is to a great degree what the Republican Party at the time had been representing. So people desiring change, I think, went as far from the administration that is presently seated as they could. It's amazing that we did as well as we did.”

She also adds that she was "frustrated" at all the misinformation the media spread about her and her family.

Palin says, “Some of the goofy things, like who was Trig's mom. Well, I'm Trig's mom, and do you want to see my medical records to prove that? And banning books. That was a ridiculous thing also that could have so easily been corrected just by a reporter taking an extra step and not basing a report on gossip or speculation."

So, on to the important question. Will Palin run for President in 2012?

Palin didn't specifically confirm the news when asked, but she did mention that polls often switch.

Saying, “Look how fickle poll numbers are. Look where I've gone, up and down, up and down, even in the state of Alaska the last couple of months. We can't pay attention to those numbers.”
