Poor Sarah Palin. It’s hard enough going on a RNC-paid shopping spree for designer clothes at Saks while the economy tanks. All those hands on you, fitting, fitting, fitting! It turns out that wasn’t the hardest part of the campaign, though. No, no, see, the really hard part of the presidential campaign was being constantly surrounded by all those Republicans who had, you know, religious cooties or something. Whatever it was, they just weren’t righteous enough for Sarah Palin to pray with. Governor Palin explains how she just didn’t think her Republican staffers were Jesus-filled enough to pray with before her Vice Presidential debate:
So I’m looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra. And the McCain campaign, love ’em, you know, they’re a lot of people around me, but nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray.
And that, Palin explains, is why things just turned out so bad: she didn’t have the right sort around her. Sarah Palin: holier than thou, and thou, and thou, and thou, and thou, and even thee. I wonder if that act will work for her just as well in the 2012 presidential race as it did in 2008.
