News that Sarah Palin may be considering a Senate run in 2014 brought out the beast in Alaska's Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, and spurred a number of tweets about the former governor.

In an interview with Politico, Begich called Palin a quitter and repeatedly raised the question of whether she’s even an Alaskan resident.

“She’s been away from Alaska a lot and has probably lost touch with what’s going on,” he told Politico. “She should go to my webpage.”

Begich told the online news site that he wouldn’t consider her a threat until she came through the Republican primary.

The idea that Palin might be toying with a Senate run elicited numerous Tweets on the subject and quite a few blog commentaries. 

On Vanity, blogger Juli Weiner said Palin was apparently just up from her nap and needed attention.

At least one Twitter devotee took the opportunity not only to slam Palin, but to make a statement about the Senate in general.

The highlighted the news that Palin is considering running with an article titled, “Four Things Sarah Palin Has Almost Done.” The list included finishing her term as Alaska’s governor (she quit in 2009) and quitting Fox News. Palin quit her work with Fox news, for which she was making $1 million a year, and then was back with them in five months.

The Week also pointed out that Palin’s conversation with Fox’s Sean Hannity about possibly running was certainly not definitive.
