The 'Wicked Witch of the Wilderness' strikes again
As if taking heat for a crosshairs chart of Democratic challengers wasn't enough, Sarah Palin decided to fan the flames today by calling for "strength and sound mind" in the White House regarding the handling of the Egyptian crisis.
"Who's going to fill the void? (President Hosni) Mubarak, he's gone, one way or the other you know, he is not going to be the leader of Egypt, that 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," said Palin in an interview with The Christian Broadcast Network.
Palin continued on to further discuss her "concerns" with the direction of the Egyptian government going forward.
"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," Palin said.
My guess is that she's really not aiming for the muslim vote in the upcoming election. Or at least not with her politics.
Palin also saw it fit to comment on the state of today's media, and the direction it should be headed in. You know, because she has a journalism degree that she acquired after attending five different colleges and has virtually no experience in the industry. Girl knows her stuff.
"...much of the mainstream media is already becoming irrelevant," she said, stressing her willingness to "help journalists out."
It's my impression that the "liberal 'gotcha' media" is just becoming too much for the queen of glittering generalities to handle. But she could at least use her journalism expertise to clarify for the CBC that she has in fact never run for President, and therefore cannot run "again," as stated in paragraph five of the network's interview with the politician-turned-celebutante.
Yes, Sarah, contrary to what those adoring fans with the "Sarah!" campaign signs say, you were not the presidential candidate in 2008's election and - God-willing - won't be in 2012 either.
