(NYDAILYNEWS) — Sarah Palin hit back at MSNBC host Martin Bashir Sunday for crass comments he made about the former governor last week.

“I don’t have to accept his words, his vile, evil comments, so they don’t have to affect me. I move on and I charge forth,” the 2008 vice presidential candidate said during an interview that aired on “Fox News Sunday.”

Last week Bashir called Palin a “world class idiot,” after she compared the federal deficit to slavery, and crudely suggested the gaffe-prone pol should be punished for the comment by being forced to eat feces.
