FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
It was only a matter of time before we heard from Sarah Palin.

The former Alaska governor, who badly bungled her response to the Arizona shootings, had managed to keep quiet on the crisis in Egypt for about two weeks. That was until her interview with the Christian Broadcast Network, where Palin highlighted her lack of foreign policy experience or understanding.
She blasted the Obama administration on Egypt, saying the crisis is the president's 3 a.m. phone call, which "went right to the answering machine."
Palin says the administration hasn't explained to the public what it knows. She says she's "not really enthused" about what's being done in Washington and called for "strength and sound mind" in the White House.
When Palin speaks it's usually a lot of feathers - not very much chicken:
"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.
"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, so we need to find out who was behind all of the turmoil and the revolt and the protests so that good decisions can be made in terms of who we will stand by and support."
Palin's words, once again, amount to a whole lot of nothing.
She criticizes President Barack Obama but doesn't offer any solution.
We should be used to this by now: lots of feathers, no chicken.
Here’s my question to you: How much do you trust Sarah Palin's opinion on Egypt?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Sarah needs to disappear for a few months and study up if she ever wants to get anywhere in the political arena. Her responses always seem to show a complete ignorance of what is happening. Her main objective is to criticize Obama, no matter what he does.

Jack, Sarah Palin is the lady who could see Russia from her house in Alaska. I do not think this qualifies her as an area expert on the Middle East or Egypt. I believe her areas of expertise are bears, fishing, shooting wolves from helicopters, and quitting jobs.
Wayne in Orlando writes:
Sarah Palin is no longer relevant. She needs to be ignored by the press and frankly, the Republican Party. It is painful to watch this woman embarrass herself.
Ikhan in Nevada writes:
Egypt is a serious geopolitical issue for the U.S., far beyond the grasp of the likes of Sarah Palin. She cannot be trusted with anything remotely this serious.
I trust Sarah Palin's opinion on Egypt as much as I trust my parrot to drive my Bolens Hydro lawnmower. The parrot's intent isn't 'knowable' but the outcome is certain.
Erin in Dayton, Ohio writes:
Palin's constant heckling is getting old. It's like a game to Ms. Palin and I just wait for when she is called out and asked to explain her remedy and we only hear the crickets chirping. Attacking without a solution allows her to be on the offensive because it's her defense that's lacking. America needs to be on the same team right now and she is doing nothing "productive" - she's only helping divide the nation. Put up or shut up.
Sarah can't see Egypt from her house, so she's completely clueless about what's going on.
Bob in Florida writes:
She may have something, you know. Egypt is one of the biggest cities in the country of Africa.
