When a journalist asked Sarah Palin how she believed the president has handled the situation in Egypt, she replied, “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.”
You have to admire her ability to put so many words in a single sentence that defies interpretation. It seems to suggest that some unnamed person or persons in Washington through some feat of black magic know who will be taking Mubarak’s place, and these fortune tellers are not going to share their information with anyone. So naturally, some unnamed person (Sarah?) is not real enthused (You ought to check your grammar on those two words, Sarah) about what’s being done on a national level and from D.C. (Where is Wikileaks when we need them?)
Her solution seems to be that the administration just needs to let everyone know what is going to happen in the future. Why didn’t we think of that?
