Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin didn’t mince words when asked for her thoughts on last night’s U.S. election.

Before the results were officially called for Obama, Palin – who was sporting ‘80s-style beauty queen bouffant – told Fox News she was “disappointed.” And perhaps seeing that the writing was on the wall, she told host Greta Van Susteren that “those Bain Capital ads” in Ohio may have tilted the state Obama’s way.

The former Alaskan governor who was one of the most colourful personalities during the 2008 presidential race was thought to be a leading candidate for the GOP in 2012. After she announced she would not run for the Republican nomination, Palin was relatively low-key, opting not to speak at the Republican National Convention in August.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Palin told her fans “not to lose heart.” She blamed the “Obama media” and warned that “Obama’s socialist policies will destroy America’s working class as he outsources opportunities.”

Last month, Palin told People Magazine she is working on a fitness book.

“Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!” Palin told the magazine in an article posted to its website.
