Some Words About Egypt and Obama Shot Out of Sarah Palin’s Face

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.]

***[full text sans peanut gallery comments below]

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

— indicates that she is the second most likely candidate to win the Republican nomination (Pawlenty Romney being the first), or so says someone smarter than I.2

Finally, if you want to bang your head against a wall for a while — just to make the pain stop — here’s Sarah on how she’ll behave if she decides to run for President:

“I would continue on the same course of not really caring what other people say about me or worrying about the things that they make up, but having that thick skin and a still spine [so — we can expect full paralysis then?!].”

What the hell is wrong with this woman? It’s like she was created in a lab.  She cannot be of this world.  I mean, really — How stupid can one person be? I think we’re witnessing some sort of Guiness Book of World Records shit.

Mark my words: At some point, she’s going to start the debate about whether or not the earth is actually flat.  I mean, who’s to say?  Science?! What’s that?

The continued stupidification of America continues… stupidly.  Might as well sign up for the Flat Earth Society and get your free tote bag.

***UPDATE — FULL TEXT:

“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.”

1 I’m guessing that she’s criticizing Obama.  I don’t speak fluent Alaskan Crazy and even Google Translate can’t decipher this nonsense.

2 I don’t know what this graph is supposed to represent, but it looks scary, so I figure I better start panicking.

    Sure she’s got a good chance of winning the GOP nomination, but I really wouldn’t worry about her beating Obama in the general. The poll averages I’ve seen have Obama up by 55-37 or so, and she’s only ahead of him by one in Arizona and Texas. Arizona and Texas! She’d have to win every single state John McCain won and then like the entire midwest sans Illinois, or take back Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania and maybe a few more. Do you see that happening? I sure don’t.

    ABL,

    Thx for this post. I cited this trainwreck interview in a comment on a prior thread. It demands its own thread because of Palin’s stone cold stupidity.

    Palin’s latest interview puts Geoffrey Rush’s oscar winning performance in Shine to shame. Palin is the Queen of “word salad”.

    Word salad is a mixture of random words that, while arranged in phrases that appear to give them meaning, actually carry no significance. The words may or may not be grammatically correct, but the meaning is hopelessly confused. People who suffer from this affliction attempt to communicate their idea, but the random words come out instead. Often, the person is unaware that he or she did not make sense.

    h/t Wikipedia

    “Palin” should be declared a unit of measurement to quantify stupidity.

    Regarding the map in general: Trump, Bolton, Cain, Paul, Giuliani = PAHAHAH! Bachmann’s scary, but no one’s every won the presidency as an incumbent in the House of Representatives. Gingrich and Santorum = keep dreamin’. They had their time. The ones I’d worry about beating Obama are the boring ones: Daniels, Thune, Barbour, and Pawlenty. I don’t think Romney qualifies as Safe and Boring anymore: too well known, too much baggage. If DeMint won the nomination, I’d be pretty worried. He knows how to get the tea party worked into a froth, and he’s not as visibly stupid as some of his peers.

    Please let me assist, ABL.

    She’s saying that Obama is doing it wrong. Of course. I mean, that’s the easy part. She’s doing so in such a freakish way because she’s been yelled at fifty times about waiting another month to make death threats, but she still has to talk Tea Jerker language. The message is that a government conspiracy is keeping secrets from Real Americans, but those Real Americans still know more in their gut than any hoity toity fed with an ‘education’ and an ‘IQ greater than 100’. Also overtones of ‘nuance is wrong, pick a side’.

    Incidentally, that there’s a message somewhere in that gibberish doesn’t make her any smarter. Her appeal is based on being the moron that makes the morons feel like they’re special. She speaks their language because it is her language.

    As for that appeal, I’m going to side with ‘Sure she has a shot at the nomination, but not at the general.’ 2010 showed the power of the whackadoodle fringe… in primaries. In the general they cost the GOP seats in what election patterning predicted would be an epic blowout. Palin polls slightly ahead of Dick Cheney in popularity among the *overall* population.

    I can see a scenario in which Palin could win the general. It would require Obama to go insane and murder Michelle and the Bidens in their beds. Even then, the tally would be close in the electoral count if he saved the rampage for October 31.

    As for what she said about Egypt, I commend CBN for reporting her every last hesitation with perfect clarity. The content has been fully explicated by other commenters, so I won’t bore folks with needless repetition.

    I still can’t shake “What is this I don’t even,” though. Just can’t. She exemplifies it.

    Calouste says:

    Can’t really put much faith in a graph that tacks Paul as a moderate.

    The chances for the nomination are from Intrade, which probably means that the Palin number is rather inflated. The volume on Intrade for Palin is about 4-5 times as much as most of the other leading contenders, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that is mostly savvy betters fleecing the Palin fanclub.

    I do fear a run though. She would certainly lose in a straight vote but you know there are nutjob shooters plotting everyday, and should “Our Lady of Lock and Load” get nominated, they’ll think it’s a sign from god that hunting season is open. The Secret Service will have to deputize the National Guard.

    Oh my.

    I am not sure how much we need to know about Egypt’s near future. It is their revolution, not ours. It is theirs to live through. I realize that the whole situation is fascinating but it is their situation. We are the spectators.

    Speaking as a spectator, this has been one wild ride. And if it really is “Arab spring,” we may have some interesting times ahead.

    On the other hand, this thread is not about the Egyptian Revolution. It’s about Miss Sarah. And she is as strange as ever.

    Don’t freak out over that graph. As Silver notes in the column, the size of those circles are derived from Intrade values for the candidates, which are essentially just the hunches of ill-informed day traders. Silver says he doesn’t accept their rankings at all, but used them only as a starting point. The real purpose of the graph was to demonstrate the spectrum of insider-outsider and conservative-moderate in the primaries.

    As much as I wish Palin would get the nomination and destroy her party, it ain’t gonna happen. Mittens or Huckster, with TPaw as VP.

    Sorry ABL,

    There may be enough asshats in the Republican party, but when it comes to that, I for one am absolutely dreaming of Palin at the top of the ticket for Republicans. She literally puts states like South Dakota and Nebraska in play for Obama. She would be an absolute disaster for R’s. She still has her fantastic record of non-accomplishment and ridiculous statements to have to run on. Landslide for Obama in 2012 if Palin is the R nom.

    I am willing to be bet that Princess Sarah had no idea who Hosni Mubarak was before this situation came up. Also I would bet that she didn’t know anything about Cairo. Also too, I bet when Princess Sarah thinks about Egyptians, the first thing she thinks of is the song “Walk Like An Eqyptian” An extra bonus – I would bet she doesn’t know who Anwar Sadat was, hell, or Nasser. And, yes, I really do think she is that stupid.

    Here’s what Sarah Palin is really saying:

    “Doesn’t it seem like that black guy isn’t being straight with us about this?”

    (She just happened to say it about Egypt this time, which is why it sounds particularly stupid.)

    It might be enough to win the GOP nomination – after all, it’s an awfully succinct (and paranoid, and regressive; but those are features, not bugs) message – but is it enough for a general election? Hard to be sure until she loses.

    I’m with Chris — probably the only sop to coherence is to imply that Obama is being “sneaky” again. She is a true pox.

    Last night I tried to share that “interview” of hers with my oldest via IM. She’s an IS major with a concentration in North Africa and has been a source of interesting insight. After a couple of snippets where she could only reply “uh, derrr..” she finally told me to “give it up” because there was absolutely nothing intelligible in that “harpy’s meanderings” and she would rather do her homework. Cracked me up.

    Sko Hayes says:

    The problem with Sarah running for president is who she is going to pick to advise her.
    After the disastrous encounter with McCain’s handlers, I predict she’s going to stick with a trusted circle of insiders, few of whom have any national political experience. She will attempt to avoid the media, but will have to succumb to interviews and answer actual questions rather than the “How do you stand all these attacks from that mean old liberal media?”.
    Her campaign will start out strong, but the gaffes will pile up. What will be interesting is how the other candidates treat her in debates.

    Translation: Obama is keeping stuff from the American people (probably because he’s a secret Muslim and hates America and we can’t trust him). He needs to pick a side to stand on, because I’m too stupid and uninformed to pick a side on my own. Until then I have to say incoherent things because I can’t figure out what to oppose until I can figure out what Obama is for.

    I grew up in Michigan, parts of which are as close as you can get to Alaska in the lower 48, so I have experience with a dialect related to Alaska Crazy.

    On PalinsTM being too large a unit of measure for stupid – they have a solution to this problem in the metric system – you just move the decimal point. MiliPalins, centiPalins, DeciPalins, etc. Problem solved. I think I’ll trademark all the metricized units myself.

    @John Emerson: I did a similar thing, but added an extra step.

    English to French to German and back to English:

    “It is a difficult situation, it’s only 3 hours call to the White House, and it seems to many we try, it seems that information from our chef at the White House that the call went straight to voicemail. And no one, no one has yet explained the American public what they know, and they certainly know more than the rest of us know that they take the place of Mubarak and … not really excited about what he is that what is happening nationally and DC for the understanding of all Situation there in Egypt.

    “And in those areas that are so volatile now because it is obviously not only Egypt, but other countries where we see riots, we want to know more today than ever, we the necessary strength and reason to the White House. We need to know what it is America stands for, so we know who it is that America is. And we do not all that information yet. “

    So, in her own words, translated into something barely coherent: we don’t know what America means unless something that has happened in Egypt is explained by Big Daddy America Figureheadperson.

    Maybe if the original was actually in English it might have made more sense.

    The sad thing is that Palin’s ramblings actually make sense to a lot of conservatives, not all of whom are old and on the margins. She has found that sweet spot of fear and anxiety that appeals to those who have bought into the argument of Limbaugh and Beck that whatever Obama is doing is wrong and not good for America.

    It’s sad, but it’s where we are. And worst of all, it is creating an opening not only for Palin, but also for someone like Mitt Romney, who is not as bone stupid as Palin, but who is just as much an empty suit with a mean streak.

    While George W. Bush did solidify the notion (set in motion by Reagan) that the U.S. will definitely elect a bag of hammers as our president, the real difference between him and Palin is money, as in old, plentiful and with as much political pull as you can get get these days. Bush had lots of all that and got the requisite nudges at election times to pull of the improbable feat, twice. Palin, not so much.

    Palin and W may share similar IQs (along with measures of fuck-you-up-the-ass viciousness and cunning) but Palin isn’t in the same political, big-money class as Bush, and it took all of that to get Bush over. Bush had heavy hitters like George Schultz and Jim Baker to get his boots up on the Oval Office desk, and Rove and Cheney to keep them there. Who’s Palin got? Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity? They’re good for keeping the screamers hot but that won’t translate into the White House–unless somebody does something REALLY, REALLY STUPID.

    How did the GOP find a power-abusing, secessionist, creationist, book-burning, pentecostal, abstinence promoting governor who’s suing the US to have polar bears removed from the endangered species list and has an unwed pregnant teenage daughter dating a guy named after the inventor of blue-jeans?

    @Nick: About all Sarah Princess has a this point is that she represents some fundamental difference between right and left. It really doesn’t even matter any more what that difference is: she’s simply a sign. I’m absolutely convinced that if we (the left) weren’t such suckers for each and every shiny turd that Sarah Princess drops, she would simply go away for lack of interest by all concerned. But clearly she serves some profound need for the left (most obviously: evidence that the right is stupid, which it is not, but that’s another issue). So, she won’t be going away. Evidently, we just need her too badly.

    On the other hand, I just don’t get why anyone would be afraid of Sarah Princess as a presidential candidate. Her politics are really no worse than pretty much the entire rest of the Republican field at this point, and all polling indicates that she would be by far the easiest of the Republican candidates for Obama to defeat in 2012.

    Palin is a 24 carat gold ignoramus who has never made an intelligent or insightful comment in her adult life. Unfortunately, the MSM keeps shoving her down our throats, so it isn’t possible to completely ignore her.

    Best takedown of Palin I’ve seen in months:

    Patti Davis is watching the current political scene with a mixture of fascination and horror. Of right-wing superstars Palin and Michele Bachmann, who constantly invoke Reagan as their political love-object, “my father was a Rhodes Scholar compared to them.”

    Also, I have no doubt Palin will do somewhat well in GOP primaries, but seriously folks, as crazy as some americans are, there are just too few of them outside certain areas where Palin is popular for her to actually win the General.

    But Palin has handlers and advisers. She does not just pop off whenever she gets an urge. I would really like to know how she and her people craft her utterances.

    How is this going to take a ton of work? This has been the shit thrown out by the GOP since Obama’s nomination, and which continues to animate a sizable chunk of the electorate.

    That said, I do not think that Palin will be the Republican nominee. But she will have a voice. And if she were as lazy as people believe, she would have dropped out of politics altogether. But she travels and speechifies and can safely attack without having to be responsible or accountable.

    And she would have to fix her Mean Girl image. Women mostly can’t stand her. But again, more actual hard work. I don’t see it happening.

    There are many women who love Palin, and her key strategy person is a woman.

    True, but there are more women who have had her number from the get go. I keep on going back to this – it will not be men that sink Sarah Palin, it will be WOMEN.

    Her gender gap is with WOMEN.

    @RossInDetroit: well, it was just a guess… anyone who’s been paying attention for the last 2 years and doesn’t dismiss those “sciencey things” as blasphemy does recognize the Palin phenomenon as a huge
    vacuum.

    @Sir Nose’D: I don’t know how or when you ran across that Time Cube website, but shame on you, Sir, for inflicting it with no warning on the innocent blog readers of Balloon Juice.

    What WAS that all about?

    I think that is one of the great unwashed. Actually it may be several in one body. Or at least one body with a lot of very loud voices. Unfortunately none of the voices speak any understandable language.

    @John Emerson: I’m so glad to see the non-word “enthused” replaced with “enthusiasm”.

    That little error phrase “…in white..” makes me think your translator is like a Freudian slip detector.

    @RSA:
    I was thinking the same thing. I crashed my FZR last week; I assign myself a milli-Palin for that, since it was mostly accidental rather than stupidity.
    It leaves full-Palin units available for hyperbole, or for referring to the Plain herself.

    @srv: I get the sense that, somewhere beneath the bitterness, there’s actually a brain down there. Somewhere.

    Not a terribly impressive one, but something.

    I believe, but this is just my opinion….I believe this is one of those days when she’s speaking off the cuff. She is too intellectually lazy to actually learn the names of “the other countries”, such as Tunisia, Yemen, etc., where there is further unrest, so she just gives a general “over there” type answer. J H C on a handcar, this is one incredibly stupid woman.

    When Dear Sarah says, “Obama’s a disgrace!”
    We “Ha-la-loo-yah!” in Sarah Palin’s face
    We must put Dear Sarah in Obama’s place
    So we “Ha-la-loo-yah!” right in Dear Sarah’s face!

    @Angry Black Lady — nicely done. Might as well laugh instead of cry.
