Radical Christian and foreign policy heavyweight Sarah Palin™ chimed in on Obama's handling of events in Egypt in a new interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. She also says her journalism degree can help the lamestream media report the truth.

And — big surprise! — she invokes the legacy of Ronald Reagan. From the Pat Robertson-led CBN:

Remember, President Reagan lived that mantra trust but verify. We want to be able to trust those who are screaming for democracy there in Egypt, that it is a true sincere desire for freedoms and the challenge that we have though, is how do we verify what it is that we are being told, what it is that the American public are being fed via media, via the protestors, via the government there in Egypt in order for us to really have some sound information to make wise decisions on what our position is."

Because we all know it's really scary when religion creeps into politics! Do they really want freedom in Egypt? The journalist in Sarah Palin™ remains skeptical. Plus, it's way easier for the US to keep backing dictators around the world than to step back and let people take control of their own destiny. Democracy is messy, you know. And what about The Media?

I want the mainstream media, and I've said this for a couple of years now, I want to help ‘em. I want. I have a journalism degree, that is what I studied. I understand that this cornerstone of our democracy is a free press, is sound journalism. I want to help them build back their reputation."

Sarah Palin will save democracy, a free press, and keep religion out of foreign countries' politics all at the same time if she's elected president. The entire interview is well worth reading.
