Failed Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin says that she has created more jobs for impersonators than President Barack Obama has created in total during during his entire presidency.

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday asked Palin how she rated Julianne Moore's impersonation of her in HBO's upcoming film "Game Change."

"I think we're going to call that The Sarah Palin Employment Act," Palin declared. "And you guys need to thank me for employing more people probably in their imitations of Sarah Palin than the president has put Americans to work."

[Scarce edit: Palin used the same joke almost a year ago when word came out about the film. See this clip with Hannity.]

"So it's a stimulus act?" Wallace asked.

"It is a stimulus act!" the half-term Alaska governor agreed. "Goodness gracious. I'm really not too concerned, though, about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things that we need to be concerned about."

"The movie echoes the book in pursuing this narrative that you went into a funk during the campaign leading up especially to the debate," Wallace noted.

"I'm sorry that millions of people are going to waste their time," Palin quipped. "I was never in a funk. Thank God I have the right perspective on what really matters in life, Chris. And there's no need to ever be in a funk when we know what right priorities are and what really matters in this life."

"I am ambivalent about it. And I, honestly, will not waste my time watching it, and I encourage others to find something else more productive to do."

Former Republican vice presidential candidate John McCain, who is played by Ed Harris, said earlier this month that he would also refuse to watch the movie.
