(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.

Wow and I was enjoying all the past months of not hearing from this well..can't say that word. For her to speak to relevancy is laughable she can be named the most irrelevant person of ALL TIME except Grover Norquist that is.
This person is irrelevant. She needs to shut up. She has nothing to contribute on the national scene. The only thing she represent is negativity and hatred. We are tired of hearing this crap.
who is Sarah Palin?
Whatever political influence this woman may have had those days are long past. Why keep her in the news she has nothing relevant to say.
Excuse me. Remember Palin's 2008 interview when she was asked an easy question that, of course, she couldn't answer? Was Time magazine on the list of magazines Palin read? Nope, don't believe so. Is it that she has moved up intellectually (ever so slightly), or did someone read the magazine to her? Whatever!!! "Sarah Palin, I think there is some irrelevancy there to tell you the truth."
Alan Johnson – Read the "Person of the year" endorsement. It is truly an honor for our president. As for Palin, she is suffering from "Glen Rice Rejection."
Who is Sarah Palin? Is she relevant?
Seriously, why is this woman still getting national press coverage? Other than her family and friends, who really cares what she says?
Right Ms Palin Obama did nothing under his stewardship and his administration a World Wide Depression was adverted.
Dear Sarah – For someone who quit as the Governor of Alaska (mid-term) under a cloud of financial impropriety and used your infamous limelight to do nothing more than fatten your bank account, I can see where you would have contempt for someone like the President. After all he is everything your not. Holding office, running the country, and fixing the problems created largely by the Party of Sarah. He was also re-elected and in great demand whereas you – if you read the posts – are merely a disfucntional sideshow quickly fading from public view.
Trueblue American –This is hilarious...hundreds of posts from liberal knuckleheads talking about how "irrelevant" Palin is today. Liberals are a funny bunch...a collection of mama's boys and girls
A nice classy way of saying .....liberals suck!
Sarah never met a grudge she couldn't keep.
If handing out race cards make you person of the year then he deserves it!
abby1 is right! Who cares what this irrelevant person thinks about anything? Please, some peace and quiet from Wasilla would be much appreciated!
Person of the year dismissed by the nobody of the year. This comes as a massive surprise to pretty much nobody.
For heaven's sake who cares what Palin says or thinks? She's a has been who never was!
Who is Palin? Isn't she busy between watching Russia and moose hunting? I would rather hear from Mickey Mouse.
Speaking of irrelevant: Why are there still articles about Sarah Palin?
The women has a point. Almost as confusing as when he received a Nobel prize.
Like I care what this woman thinks
Your 15 minutes are up honey.
why is a reality tv personality's comments in the political section?
Can you imagine Palin as President? She is just G.W. Bush in drag.......
