(CNN) - Sarah Palin is known for her winks, but she may be raising some eyebrows with aFacebook post Wednesday.

In the post, she used the term "shuck and jive" to describe President Obama's statements on the recent attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The racially loaded term, which means misleading and deceptive talk and behavior, has a long history as a negative view of African Americans.

Palin, who ran for vice president in 2008 and quit her term as Alaska governor early, is a conservative pundit for Fox News.

White House spokesman Jay Carney took some heat for using the phrase during a briefing last year.

He said he would have to "shuck and jive" for the media since he didn't bring the right notes.
