She’s STILL talking!
A couple days ago I tried to make sense of Sarah Palin’s verbally craptastic criticism of Obama’s handling of the situation in Egypt.
Well today, the Internet Lords have blessed us with more bullshit from Our Lady of Lock and Load, and it’s even more funny, gastrically distressing, mind-numbing blisteringly stupid than I could have imagined. Once more unto the breach, dear friends:
“Remember, President Reagan lived that mantra trust but verify. We want to be able to trust those who are screaming for democracy there in Egypt, that it is a true sincere desire for freedoms. And the challenge that we have though, is how do we verify what it is that we are being told, what it is that the American public is being fed via media, via the protestors, via the government there in Egypt in order for us to really have some sound information to make wise decisions on what our position is. Trust but verify, and try to understand is what I would hope our leaders are engaged in right now. Who’s going to fill the void? Mubarak, he’s gone, one way or the other. He is not going to be the leader of Egypt. That’s a given. So now the information needs to be gathered and understood as to who it will be that fills now the void in the government. Is it going to be the Muslim Brotherhood? We should not stand for that, or with that or by that. Any radical Islamists, no that is not who we should be supporting and standing by. So we need to find out who was behind all of the turmoil and the revolt and the protests so that good decisions can be made in terms of who we will stand by and support.”

She’s talking again.
Sarah Palin has blissfully been silent about Egypt. Until now.
In an interview with some dude at the Christian Broadcasting Network, Palin criticized Obama for his handling of Egypt:1
“It’s a difficult situation,” Ms. Palin told the Christian Broadcasting Network. “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 [what who knows?], and surely they [they who?] know more than the rest of us know [us who?] who it is who will be taking the place of Mubarak [what the -- how are they to know who is taking the place of Mubarak when Mubarak himself can't seem to make up his damn mind] and no, not, not real enthused [yes, but are you jazzed?] about what it is that that’s being done on a national level and from D.C. [Do you have any idea what you just said?] in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt. [The Situation is in Egypt?! Pics or GTFO.] And, in these areas [what areas? Alaska? Russia?] in that are so volatile right now, because obviously it’s not just Egypt but the other countries too [Which other countries, too? Can you name one? Didn't think so.] where we are seeing uprisings, we know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House [::blank stare::]. We need to know what it is that America stands for [truth, justice, and the American way! Duh.] so we know who it is that America will stand with. [Anyone standing with you is standing with Stupid. That, we know.] And, we do not have all that information yet.” [All what information? What America stands for? Whether America has legs? I just -- I can't even.]”

First of all: What in THEE hell is she talking about?
Second of all: “Nobody has explained to the American public what they know” is a delicious Freudian slip because that’s the Teatwit credo, isn’t it? “We don’t know anything until you tell us what we know.”
Third of all: I’m not kidding — what the fuck is she even saying?!
Fourth of all: Don’t get comfortable. This country is full of asshats and they are dumb enough to elect this woman president. Nate Silver’s new graph — Continue reading
