It’s been years since she held elected office, but former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has released a new web video proving she’s far from ready to relinquish her star role in Republican politics.

Palin brings the mama grizzlies out of hibernation, complete with a growling bear, in the new video released by her political action committee, SarahPAC and delivered to her loyal followers in a fundraising email.

The video, “Loaded for Bear,” features clips of Palin’s speech at at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference, although no footage of Tina Fey’s recent impression managed to make the final cut.

And while it doesn’t reveal whether Palin plans to run for office in 2014, the video does indicate she plans to play a role in the midterm election, perhaps as a kingmaker. The ad touts her support of a number of recently elected tea party senators, including Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio (who’ve recently teamed up in opposition to gun control).

Whatever her plans may be, it’s safe to say Karl Rove won’t be happy, especially the recent rekindling of their long-running feud.
