In 2006, the Eagle Forum in Alaska posed several questions to prospective Alaskan gubernatorial
candidates. Sarah Palin's responses appeared on the organizations' website until she was chosen as McCain's running
mate. Since that fateful day, the questionaire and Sarah's responses have been removed from the web page presumably
because her responses indicated that she was ignorant.
Luckily, Google preserved a snapshoot fo the site before her supporters removed it.
Here is just one of the questions asked and Palin's idiotic response!
Question 11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God”
in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
Palin Responded : Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me
and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
Well Sarah, your answer illustrates your ignorance of American History.
First, the Pledge of Allegiance did not exist prior to the the 20th century (the 1900s that
is). In case you forgot, the founding father dudes were those dudes that signed the Declaration of Independance
in 1776, led the American Revolution, and then penned the Constitution of the United States!
In case math is as confusing to you as basic American history, the Pledge of Allegiance was not written
until more than 100 years after the ratification of the US Constitution. Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Hamilton
and other founding dudes were DEAD by then.
So, to summarize, the Pledge of Allegiance could not have been good enough for the founding fathers
BECAUSE THEY WERE DEAD BEFORE IT WAS CREATED.
Here is that topper Sarah, the "One Nation Under God" part of the Pledge was not part of the original Pledge
of Allegiance. The phrase was added by the Republican- controlled Congress in the 1950's at the height of the "Red Scare."
So the founding fathers WERE REALLY REALLY DEAD BEFORE this language was added.
