McCain "has been running a seamy campaign originally designed by the bad seed of conservative politics, Lee Atwater. Atwater relished teaching rich, white Republicans to feign a connection to the common man so they could get in office and economically undermine the common man.:" (1) However, McCain's biggest problem has been his poor judgment in picking Sarah Palin!
McCain's fear is that "the Evangelical swoon for Palin could fade if it turned out that they were aware that she continued to hold fast to Pentecostal practices and beliefs. Palin's most consistent religious home has been the Pentecostal church of her youth. Though her family left the Wasilla Assembly of God in 2002, just before she launched her campaign for lieutenant governor, Palin has continued to return. The now-famous prayer to protect her from witchcraft took place during a visit in 2005, three years after Palin's official departure. She returned again as recently as June 2008, making reference to that earlier service and crediting the African pastor's prayer with leading to her gubernatorial victory. And when she works from the state capital, Palin attends the Juneau Christian Center, an Assemblies of God congregation. It is this Pentecostal association that most concerns and confuses the McCain campaign. As Minnery makes clear, millions of evangelicals have accepted Palin because of her membership in a Bible church. But there is no denying that mainstream Evangelicals and Pentecostals, while political allies on many social issues, have historically had significant tensions over theological differences."
Then there is also: "PALINS' UN-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES! Imagine if the Obamas had hooked up with a violently anti-American group in league with the government of IRAN!
Oct. 7, 2008 | "My government is my worst enemy. I'm going to fight them with any means at hand." The quote is from Joe Vogler, the raging anti-American who founded the Alaska Independence Party. Inconveniently for Palin, that's the very same secessionist party that her husband, Todd, belonged to for seven years and that she sent a shout-out to as Alaska governor earlier this year. ("Keep up the good work," Palin told AIP members. "And God bless you.") ALSO, Palin quoted James Westbrook Pegler, a facist and racist, in the V. P. debate?"
Recently, the conservative David Brooks called Sarah Palin a cancer on the Republican party. Those are harsh words! She has become an embarassment, so much so, that the inexperienced and unqualified Sarah was allowed to use Flash Cards at the debate, and yet she is too unintelligent to go on Meet the Press (like all the other Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates have all these years), or she has to have John McCain babysit her even when she is interviewed by Fox, of all stations!
How long will the American public stand for this hoax perpetuated by Camp McCain? Because, after all, she would be a "Heart-Beat Away."
