NOW with Alex Wagner | March 13, 2013
>>> how would you stay relevant if you're a former fox news contributor/mama grizzly who hasn't been in office for almost four years? the answer is obvious, release a war on christmas book. yesterday sarah palin announced her third book to be released in november "a happy holiday is a merry christmas ." let's talk about this sort of -- indignant, all caps there, i will also read to you, palin's statement on why she's releasing the book, which is some choice -- amid st. the fragility of this politically correct era, it is imperative that we stand up for our beliefs before the element of faith in a glorious and traditional holiday like christmas is manual inized and ignored. of time i i read one of her quotes, i'm not sure with the subject and vertebra is, and whether there could be a comma, but is this the rebranding that sarah palin needsing to back on top?
>> no. my favorite part is the glorious. the only place you see glorious is in like some translation of english, gull glorious republic. what does that title even mean?
>> i think she's already, jared, already on defense against all haters, which i guess is her permanent state for --
>> she's comfortable playing defense. i read some materials about this, and i'm sure --

>> that would be wonderful, but when she's complaining in her own statement about political correctness, you get the impression that something else is at work here. when i first heard about it, i thought that sarah palin was writing sort of a nice sweet holiday book. i thought, hey, that's really smart. it will be a big seller, burnish her image, gull no such luck, i man.
>> rana "the washington post " writes, you don't announce them in march.
>> also, aren't children's books sort of what you do when you're trying to have a rebound? it's usually not successful.
>> also, angry children's books.
>> where does that fit in?
>> yeah, the indignant sort of malicious children's book, but anyway, she's an al chemist.
>>> we have to leave it there. we are still on papal watch. there he is.
>> there's the bird.
>> that bird is still on that chimney. jared bernstein, just
