The unedited version of Sarah Palin's comment to Matt Lauer has just been transcribed by CNN.  Here it is:

Matt Lauer:  "What are we hearing from the Tea Party in terms of an absolute, realistic plan that can be an alternative to Obamacare?"

Sarah Palin: Thank you, you're the way of the nation, I think we need that the plan is to allow those things and unless you're forgetting millions of America which is the private sector and thrive and turn to let the people's side on the solution. Also that had been proposed over many years to reform a health-care system in America that certainly does need more help so that there's more competition, there's less tort reform threat, there's less trajectory of the cost increases, and those plans have been proposed over and over again. Now, what I've joined this world, with reform. I do need the federal government has not answer the nice thing to give you feeling about the government has been a governor we just take a tax increases. I come with Americans straight to argue about the nuclear, the kitchen table and regulations and healthy debate with being created here. Now, Barack Obama was the causes. What I've been there. We're tired of our kids to use as they deem best for health care coverage. That's un American. And that's not support a heck of course, he's a state we need and get down on the heartland of this, but a heck of the Obama administration's policy on our friends and I, we're building Obamacare have billions of the war on this that's a reckless, reckless comment and regulations and I was right, when we're doing the greatest in bringing folks of exceptionalism. that would engage in jeopardy of surrender in my opinions at least until this peace-seeking nation, and now you can start to have to change coverage, or vice- versa. Americans are going to agree on that. And what thwarts those plans? It's the far left. It's President Obama and his supporters who will not allow the Republicans to usher in free market, patient-centered, doctor-patient relationship links to reform health care.

Matt Lauer:  Uh...can you sum that up?

Sarah Palin: Yes. (20-second pause and a smile with direct eye contact)

Matt Lauer: Thank you.

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.
