Sarah Palin took a swipe Sunday at poltical strategist Karl Rove, defending her TV appearances and pointing out that the late President Ronald Reagan also spent plenty of time in front of a camera. According to the Huffington Post, Rove began the feud last sarah,palin,karl,rove,ronald,reaganweek by telling a London newspaper that "There are high standards that the American people have for it [the presidency], and they require a certain level of gravitas, and they want to look at the candidate and say 'that candidate is doing things that gives me confidence that they are up to the most demanding job in the world.'"

That remark has been interpreted by many as a jab at Palin, who is starring in a new TV show called "Sarah Palin's Alaska."

On Sunday she hit back at Rove, saying tongue-in-cheek on "Fox News Sunday": "You know, I agree with that, that those standards have to be high for someone who would ever want to run for president like, um, wasn't Ronald Reagan an actor? Wasn't he in Bedtimes for Bonzo, bozo or something? Ronald Reagan was an actor. ...

"I'm not in a reality show. I have eight episodes documenting Alaska's resources, what it is that we can contribute to the rest of U.S. to economically and physically secure our union, and my family comes along for the ride because I am family, family is us, and my family comes along on the ride to document these eight episodes for The Learning Channel. ... So Karl is wrong right there in calling it a reality show."
