The ink barely dry on her hand after her thunderously baffling paean to The Man Who Should Be Rushmored, former kind-of governor of Alaska Sorta Failin sat down with kind-of reporter David Brody of the kind-of network CBN to criticize the actual president of the United States on his handling of current events in Egypt.

What follows is not a translation from Arabic.

“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.”

Kind-of Gov. Failin was expanding--like a gas giant--on remarks made earlier to the kind-of network citing the protests against Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's rule as a "3 a.m. White House phone call" moment, and that,  “Now, more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House.”

Aside from jamming on slogans from past presidential campaigns, analysts have determined that kind-of Gov. Failin was principally complaining that the president has not briefed her on his administration's policy toward events in Egypt.

Doctors have called English's condition "serious," but are hoping the language's vital signs will stabilize by morning.

No, it's not snark.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
