On Fox News last night, Sarah Palin admitted some skepticism about the relevancy of TIME magazine, which named President Obama as "Person of the Year," because, she said, she was also on that list.

"I think there's some irrelevancy there, to tell you the truth," Palin told Greta Van Susteren. "I mean consider their list of the most influential people in the country and the world, some who have made that list -- yours truly!

The comments about TIME are around the 4:20 mark:
