Palin’s View from the Pew

Along the lines of the endless loops of Jeremiah Wright’s inanities, Harper’s posts some of the more outre sermonology of Gov. Palin’s pastors.

If we ever thought that winning the approval of the end-of-days crowd required anything other than a church membership and anti-abortion bona fides,  the fact that someone Dobson has almost certainly never met is now his next Reagan makes it pretty clear:

Christian conservatives like Gary Bauer, Tony Perkins and James Dobson have hailed McCain’s selection of Palin. Dobson, the head of Focus on the Family, vowed earlier this year to never support McCain.

    as for bullet-proof and spotless, i’m willing to be you a case of near beer that she ain’t. and i’ll throw in another case if you can show me anyone who is.
