God and Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin is both usual and unusual. She is usual in that she is in the mainstream of those who believe in American exceptionalism, the 71 percent who are "very proud" of being American. At the same time, she is unusual in that she views and conducts herself not as a politician -- which she is -- but a citizen who sees public office as an opportunity to serve. Interwoven in all of this is the confidence that comes from knowing that God loves her, up close and personal, an integral part of her Christian faith and central to Judeo-Christian culture.
Sarah Palin is grounded in the divine, which means, in part, that she believes, as did the framers of our constitution, that individuals are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." God gives us our rights, and not Washington, the United Nations, or The New York Times or NBC. She does not need a poll to determine the morality of a political and media culture in which the pursuit of power and wealth on the part of its participants comes first (any doubt, see the recent attempt by the Washington Post to sell access to its newsroom and the Obama administration),


Anybody else see this?

OK, maybe a little over the top, maybe not.

If public office is such an opportunity to serve, why did she abdicate said office? Why would I be mistaken to think she found an even greater opportunity to serve her own financial interests by becoming a full time, right wing celebrity?

The article was tendentious puffery written for her fan club.

American Thinker: God and Sarah Palin
Uhmmm good thing you didn't post the first two sentences of the article or there wouldn't be any doubt about whether it was "over the top" or not:

And why she -- and He -- will be back.
Seriously? This is something you think of as a good thing? Disagreeing with Sarah Palin means you hate God?

I really despise rhetoric like that.

Has anyone ever noticed that some of the same people who talk so much about personal accountability are the same ones who blame everyone else when they lose a political race?

Sarah Palin didn't lose because she's a know-nothing political lightweight. She lost because of the so-called "liberal media"...because of Democratic and/or liberal "meanies" who were ugly to her and her family....because her opponents "hate God".

Nothing's ever her fault - it's everyone else's fault!

Jesus loves Palin, AND Jesus loves the little children....all the children of the world.

Does this mean that Palin haters also hate children?

Let's not conflate hate and a complete lack of respect.

One a side note I love when I get to use the word "conflate".
