(CNN) - Sarah Palin, who's been listed twice as one of Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People," is taking issue with the publication's decision to name President Barack Obama as its "Person of the Year."
Poking fun at herself, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said the magazine lacks a certain degree of relevancy.

"Time magazine, I think there's some irrelevancy there to tell you the truth. I mean consider their list of the most influential people in the country and in the world. Some who have made that list? Yours truly. That oughta tell ya something right there regarding the credence we should give Time magazine and their list of people," she said Wednesday on Fox News.
Managing editor Richard Stengel wrote Obama deserved the recognition because he "forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union."
But Palin, who along with 2008 GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, lost to the Democratic presidential ticket four years ago, said "those are some silly words chosen to describe Barack Obama."
"When I first heard that, the first thing that popped in my mind was: What the heck has he done? Really, what has he done, except drive us over a fiscal cliff," she said. "What has he done to unify and make our nation a more perfect union? For the life of me, I don't know."
The former Alaska governor was chosen as one of the magazine's most influential people in 2009 and held a top spot on the same list in 2010. She was also considered one of four runners-up for "Person of the Year" in 2008, when Obama first received the title, and as someone "who mattered" in 2010.
She argued that "the path towards a perfect union is our Constitution" but said Obama "sees it as a charger of negatives" that needs serious changes.
Palin stoked speculation for much of 2011 as she considered a presidential bid but ultimately decided to stay out of the running. She largely stayed out of the presidential race, instead choosing to campaign for conservative Senate candidates in GOP primary battles.

@The Real Tom Paine – Based on the statements from conservatives on this site, they appear to have perfected the technique you claim liberals employ.
There are 'no' genuine conservatives posting here today other than me and one or two others. LOL
Who is this Sarah Palin? Is she someone of importance?
Sarah who? Why is this person of interest?
Palin? Really? Why does CNN even bother putting out any press on this idiot? Her opinions on anything simply don't matter. Quit giving her any press coverage on any topic...Please!!!
Oh my is she still talking? Why?!
At what stage will the press stop carrying opinions coming from Sarah Palin?A fifth grader is more intelligent than her, on all accounts.
Please,Fox/Fake News -spear us the headache and shut this woman up for once,she irritates right thinking people.
who cares what that has-been thinks about anything ! ? ! ?
Sarah, please go watch RUSSIA out of your kitchen window. Your are a bitter loser and has the ability to turn the stomach of millions at the mention of your name.
He deserve that as much as he deserved the Peace Prize, for doing absolutely nothing! The standard for the Peace prize has reached so low that's how he got it.
News flash to Sarah Palin, your 15 minutes of fame are over. Talk about lacking a certain degree of relevancy!
Sarah Palin is the one who is irrelevant, not Time Magazine or POY 2012
Wow she thinks? Of course she's poking fun at herself the rest of us do too.
Please give us a break from reporting non-entities' absurd utterances.
This fraud who ruined McCain's chances in 2008 and then quit after two years as Governor because she was being investigated is an embarrassment to all real conservatives.
Sarah you sound a little jelly
Sarah, Sarah, Sarah... your 15 minutes was up 2 hours ago. Take your ill-gotten money and leave us alone. Haven't we suffered enough of your families crap?Thanks!
CNN- why oh why do you still consider anything she or Anne Coulter spews as being newsworthy? Please stop giving Palin and other "wannabe" pundits a voice in the media.
CNN: Please stop printing things this woman says. Donald Trump, too. They are only relevant because you make them so. Stop doing that.
Sarah Palin is not relevant!
Seriously? Sarah Palin is whining b/c President Obama was chosen Time's POY? Lady, you, your son & your daughter all got pregnant before marriage. I think you need to pay more attention to your family issues than publically whining about our President who beat you & McCain 4 years ago. Get over it & focus on your own family, you bitter old woman.
If the QUITTER from Wasilla bothered to actually READ any of those news sources she claimed to follow, or had ANY KNOWLEDGE of history, she would know that TIME's "Person of the Year" is simply the person or group that made or influenced the most news stories in the last year. The choice has NEVER been tied to any judgement of you "good" or "bad" that person was, or if that person should be held up as any kind of model. In the history of that magazine there have been choices from every part of the spectrum. Heroes and villains like. Palin needs to get over herself, and her jealousy and anger at no longer being relevant to our nation's discourse.
Well, she was right to criticize her place on the 100 Most Influential People list–she doesn't deserve to be listed there. And because of that, her envy-colored opinion of Obama (or anyone else who made the list) shouldn't matter to anyone.
Honestly, she is doing nothing for the country right now except shoving her face into newspapers for sake of controversy and attention; as for my opinion, I think Sarah Palin is nothing more than a glorified Kim Kardashian right now–famous for the sake of fame, with no fame-worthy talent/opinion whatsoever.
She is just plain high school jealous...green eyed monster...
"Oh my is she still talking? Why?!"
The MSM keeps pulling the string.
