Words Shot Out of Sarah Palin's Face

Balloon Juice's Angry Black Lady has provided some editorial comments to part of Sarah Palin's interview, which followed her recent screech speech at former President Reagan's former ranch on February 5th:
“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.]

Read the whole post at "Some Words About Egypt and Obama Shot Out of Sarah Palin’s Face."

More can be read about Palin's speech and/or interview at Outside the Beltway (with video of Palin's interview with CBN's David Brody), at Washington Monthly ("Word salads are a dish best served cold.") and at the NY Times, which dared, had the audacity -- this is a real failure by Palin's internet cop, Rebecca Mansour -- to print:
... The dinner, which was at a far smaller venue than the big rallies Ms. Palin often attends, had tight security and rigid rules. She entered the room just before she spoke — forgoing the ritual of sitting through dinner and mingling with guests — and exited before the applause ended.

People were admonished to stay in their seats and not approach Ms. Palin as she walked through the room.

“We’d all like to jump up and give her a high-five, but please stay at your tables,” Kate Obenshain, vice president of the foundation, announced from the dais. “There will be no book signings or autographs.”

At the end of the evening, people were asked to put their own cameras away and retire to the second floor of the Reagan Ranch Center to have a professional photograph taken with Ms. Palin, which will be sent to them in the mail. ...

Sarah Palin got a lot of attention from that speech and interview, but I suspect that the interest is more of a watch-the-trainwreck sort than a run-sarah-run sort.
