Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has agreed with Fox News boss Roger Ailes that she went back to Fox News as a commentator "to piss off" the people who wished she were dead.

On her Facebook page, Palin wrote, "Fox’s Roger Ailes says he hired me 'to piss off the people that wanted her dead.' Hmmm. Funny. I accepted for the same reason!"

The Fox News Chairman said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter that he hired Palin to "give her a chance to say her piece and piss off the people that wanted her dead."

He said, "The only two people I knew who got worse press than her were Richard Nixon and George W. Bush — some of it unfairly, much of it unfair to her family. She's recognizable, she's attractive, and she still has the message of stop raising taxes."

He also praised Palin for becoming an outspoken tea party supporter.

"The Tea Party started as a group that [the government] could make go home to bake meatloaf at any point in the last three years by simply doing two things: Stop raising taxes and stop stealing their money. Congress can't stop spending money.

"I'm not a defender of everything she says. I don't hear everything she says. But I know she represents a certain group of people who rose up against their own party, which you rarely see."
