(Newser) – Sarah Palin says she's looking at another run for political office—apparently with the noble motive of annoying her critics. In a Fox interview, the former Alaska governor said the "hatred" she faces only inspires her, NBC News reports. "Bless their hearts, those haters out there. They don't understand that it invigorates me, it wants me to get out there and defend the innocent. It makes me want to work so hard for justice in this country," she said. "The more they are pouring on, the more I'm gonna bug the crap out of them by being out there with the voice, with the message, hopefully running for office in the future, too."

Palin also slammed the leadership of the Republican Party, saying, "The leadership right now, those who at least have the titles of leaders in the GOP, they need more guts," the Hill reports. When asked about CNN's Carol Costello, who joked about a drunken brawl the Palin family was involved in last month, Palin said "every family has a challenge" and that liberals "want to destroy personally" their opponents. "They are very, very intolerant of those who maybe hold [an] opposing view to their liberal failed agenda view," she said. "So, they want to crush us." (Read more Sarah Palin stories.)
