Sarah Palin Says Republican Leaders Not Religious Enough For Her Prayer Circle

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.

    Well, good morning to you too.

    I care if she’s running for President in 2012, which she shows indications of, and if she is one of the more popular GOP presidential contenders, which polls show she is. Barack Obama has problems as a president. Sarah Palin would be worse.

    She’s probably right- Political campaign workers are a pretty sorry lot when it comes to morals, regardless of party.

    Seriously Jim, “Barack Obama has problems as a president.” Is an understatement.

    But Sarah Palin would be worse? Based on what? She supports more personal freedom, wants to let States handle their affairs rather than Washington, and wouldn’t be trying to effectively nationalize everything.

    Sarah is terrible because what? She is a Christian??? There is nothing to support this foolish notion that a Palin Presidency would result in some sort of theocracy with Jackbooted thugs dragging people to church.

    As for what is taught in schools, she has always been very much in favor of letting States handle their own curriculum.

    She is one of the most unfairly maligned political figures in my memory.
