Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) announced on Monday that she was writing a book filled with "legalese" about how to fight what some social conservatives call the "War on Christmas."

In her first appearance on Fox News after once again becoming an employee of the network, Palin was asked by Fox News host Megyn Kelly to fill in the audience about how she had been spending her time.

"I'm doing great," the former Alaska governor explained. "I'm very busy of course with my kids -- two beautiful grandkids -- writing a book, a book about Christmas and pushing back on the politically correct who would try to take Christ out of Christmas."

"We talk a lot about that in the book," she continued. "Kind of a legalese how-to push back and protect the heart of Christmas. At the same time, a very festive and happy and jolly book about tradition and recipes and fun things about Christmas."

Kelly wondered with all the time she was spending on her book, was Palin able to keep up with the recent scandals involving Benghazi, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and National Security Agency surveillance?

"It's the whole ball of wax that all leads to this revelation that government lies," Palin opined. "And with Benghazi though, government lied and people died. So, that's very significant. The other issues are government lied and government spied. That's pretty bad too."

"It's a foundational message of the tea party grassroots movement, and that is that government is out of hand, it is oppressive, it is intrusive into every aspect our lives. And it's grown so large that it is unaccountable this point."
