(Newser) – Leave it to Sarah Palin to go from talking Israel to talking “redneck” ringtones all in one Fox News appearance. Speaking on Justice With Judge Jeanine last night, Palin criticized President Obama’s Middle East speech ("More than ever we should be standing strong with Israel and saying ‘No, you don't have to divide Jerusalem, you don't have to divide your capital city.’”), calling Obama “our temporary leader.” Who does she like as a replacement? Well, Tea Party favorite Herman Cain has her excited, even though his main experience is as the head of the Godfather’s Pizza franchise, ABC News reports.

“He knows how to make a payroll … He knows how to make a really good pizza,” Palin explained. But it wasn’t until the end of the interview that they really got into the meaty stuff. When asked about her cell phone ringtone (Newt Gingrich’s was recently revealed to be ABBA’s “Dancing Queen”), Palin admitted that hers is “really boring” at the moment. But “I think the mood that I am in today and the venue that I am in, I’d pick Gretchen Wilson’s ‘Redneck Woman’ and I’d be proud to have that as my ringtone.” Meanwhile, the Arizona Republic reports Palin may have purchased a nearly $1.7 million home in the state, where she is rumored to be considering running a 2012 campaign.
