My friend the witch doctor
Sarah Palin is going to avoid the filter of the mainstream media...unless it serves her purposes, and happens to be with a mainstream writer who is sympatico with her "God Bless this great country of exceptionalism," line of crap.
So, as Bill Kristol writes today, he was on the phone with VP candidate Bush-in-skirts, and he asked here why she was dredging up the Bill Ayers connection, when the Reverend Wright relationship was so much more established.
Palin replied: "To tell you the truth, Bill, I don’t know why that association isn’t discussed more, because those were appalling things that that pastor had said about our great country, and to have sat in the pews for 20 years and listened to that — with, I don’t know, a sense of condoning it, I guess, because he didn’t get up and leave — to me, that does say something about character"
I guess that might open the door for the Obama campaign to talk about Palin's relationship to the various churches in which she has participated and, received exorcism from a self-proclaimed witchdoctor, talked about the war in Iraq as a mission from God, heard lectures on Palestinian raids into Israel (which she dearly loves, you betcha) as as sign of endtimes and the return of Jesus.
It's bad enough that her non-answer, mini-stump speeches during the debate sounded like glossolalia. Hate to have her begin to speak in tongues during a touchy international negotiation.
