Palin for Theocrat?

Governor Palin has given an interview to Dr. James Dobson, the pontiff of the Focus On the Family organization, in which she solicits prayers in favor of her election and seems to suggest that God gave her a Down syndrome baby for some higher purpose. You can read more here, including some ripe samples of the Alaskan's peculiar manner of speaking. Here's one to whet your appetite: Dobson has asked whether Palin considers Senator McCain a true believer in the pro-life platform.

I am such a strong believer that McCain believes in those strong planks and we do have good conversations about some of the details too of the different planks and what they represent. I'm very heartened that John McCain ... he doesn't want a Vice President who will check the opinions ... of me at the door and we talk about some of these and they're very important. It's most important though, as you're suggesting, that Americans know that John McCain is solidly there on those solid planks in our platform that build the right agenda for America.

Little of this will surprise anyone by now, but it should still make people indignant. It ought to be publicized and packaged with her persistent and apparently willful overestimate of the powers of the Vice President to scare the bejeezus out of people, just in time for Halloween. I hear that costume stores can't keep the wigs and glasses in stock that make for fake Palins next week. Seeing them all on the streets, at parties or in nightclubs, could well cause a stampede to the polls in November. That would be a grass-roots fear campaign that could not be better timed.

As someone wiser than me has stated:
"The only difference between Sarah Palin's mouth and her vagina is that not everything that comes out of her vagina is retarded.
