Sarah Palin on Obama's Handling of Egypt Crisis

As reported in the NY Times.  Yes, she really said this (most of it is quoted from a transcript provided by Christian Broadcasting Network):
“It’s a difficult situation. . . . This is that 3 a.m. White House phone call, and it seems for many of us trying to get that information from our leader in the White House, it seems that that call went right to the answering machine.”

“And nobody yet has, nobody yet has explained to the American public what they know, and surely they know more than the rest of us know who it is who will be taking the place of Mubarak and no, not, not real enthused about what it is that that’s being done on a national level and from D.C. in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt. And, in these areas that are so volatile right now, because obviously it’s not just Egypt but the other countries too where we are seeing uprisings, we know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House. We need to know what it is that America stands for so we know who it is that America will stand with. And, we do not have all that information yet.”

Are we to understand that, in your estimation, Mr. Obama isn't providing (or, I dare say, isn't of) "sound mind?"  Whereas you would have us believe that, based on this crisp, sparkling analysis, if it was you getting that 3 AM White House call, you'd parse the situation and nail it down - and that the world would know exactly what America stands for?

"You betcha."

This muddled nonsense from a woman who wants to occupy the Oval Office and provide America with strong, decisive, clear-minded leadership.  There is absolutely no evidence in this transcript that, after almost 2 weeks of a dramatic, potentially monumentally important, whole-new-ballgame kind of revolution in Egypt, she's read or even watched anything that might have given her an iota of insight. She is completely clueless.  We'd get more clarity from an Alzheimers patient.

Maybe, dear Sarah, you ought to worry less about trademarking your name (and your daughter's - though, if you really want to do that, remember to sign the form next time), buy yourself a Kindle, and download some books and articles.  Of course, as some have said about Aristotle's tutelage of Alexander the Great, it might be a monumental waste of time - not to mention your PAC money.
