Is Sarah Palin teasing us again?

(CNN) - Sarah Palin is stirring the pot again, suggesting she might seek office again.

"I've considered it because people have requested me to consider it. But, I'm still waiting to see what the lineup will be and hoping that - there again, there will be some new blood, new energy," she told radio host Sean Hannity on Monday.

Begich: Alaskans don't like quitters

Washington (CNN) – Sen. Mark Begich, the Alaska Democrat who holds the seat Sarah Palin is considering seeking, argued Wednesday the high-profile Republican has lost touch with the values of her state.

Speaking to CNN the day after Palin said she had contemplated a run for Senate, Begich questioned whether the former governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee still has enough of a connection to Alaska and its residents.

Palin: I'm considering a Senate run

Updated at 10:04 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 9

(CNN) – Sarah Palin may not be done with politics after all.

The former Alaska governor, who was also 2008's GOP vice presidential nominee, said Tuesday she's contemplating a bid for U.S. Senate against Democrat Mark Begich. He's up for re-election in 2014.

"I've considered it because people have requested me [to] consider it," Palin told conservative radio host Sean Hannity on his 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."

Palin embraces SNL sketch, dishes out her own humor

(CNN) - There are so many scandals in Washington, Sarah Palin said, they could be lumped under the name of the botched gun-running sting that landed Attorney General Eric Holder in hot water long before the Benghazi, IRS or NSA stories came to light.

"These scandals are coming at us so Fast and Furious," she quipped at an annual gathering of conservatives on Saturday.

Extra IRS scrutiny on conservative applications shows 'corruption,' Palin says

(CNN) - Sarah Palin said the Internal Revenue Service's recent scrutiny of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status is a sign of "corruption at the heart of big government" in Washington.

"So many Americans knew this was happening, but many felt defenseless and even helpless against a government that seems to roll along without accountability or sense of obligation to the people it's supposed to serve. These Americans were mocked for being concerned about this, but now we see light shining on the truth, finally," she wrote in an online posting shortly after the IRS acknowledged it made "mistakes" in handling the applications of tea party groups.

Palin no fan of ‘pathetic’ #nerdprom

(CNN) - Conan O’Brien and President Barack Obama may have had the political crowd in high spirits at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, but in Alaska, Sarah Palin wasn’t laughing.

“Yuk it up media and pols,” the former Alaska governor wrote on her Facebook page. “While America is buried in taxes and a fight for our rights, the permanent political class in DC dresses up and has a prom to make fun of themselves. No need for that, we get the real joke.”
