Sarah Palin continues to try to explain away why she had to write her answers to the questions at last month’s Tea Party gathering in Nashville.
Palin’s latest attempt occurred at a right to life fundraiser in Ohio last night. She said, “If what was good enough for God, scribbling on the palm of his hand, it’s good enough for me, for us.” Palin has now been reduced to invoking God to explain away her ineptitude.
Had Palin been Abraham, she would have put down the knife (or not), and paraded Isaac in front of the next available publicist, blaming the tribal scribes and gossips for the whole ordeal.
Had Palin been Moses, the Israelites would have gotten 2/3 of the way across the Red Sea - and passed the ball.
Had Palin been Moses, there might be - at most - 7 commandments.
Had Palin been Joshua, she would have put down the trumpet just before the walls actually began to tumble. Had she played the flute, the walls would have only grown stronger, unless they rocked to the ground from laughter.
Had Palin been David, we would have 30 or so Psalms, instead of 150. At least in the first volume. Palin-David would hold for a better deal on the remaining 120.
Had Palin been Lot's wife, we'd be spared a helluva a lot of salty trouble over the past 33 months. In spite of the fact she probably has multiple attorneys looking back for her, she keeps looking back.
I could go on, comparing her to prophets and biblical figures, perhaps her worshipers favorite, Esther. Instead, it might be more profitable to look at her for what she really is - the 21st Century's most prominently pathetic political caricature and serial liar.
Andrew Sullivan's list of lies (time for an update, Andrew).
Jeanne Devon's prescient essay on the most recent lie:
Is it possible that young Chuck Heath, Jr. had not one, but TWO “little kid accident things” that involved burns of the ankle and foot? Or, perhaps the story was simply tweaked to tell people what they want to hear, while utilzing the perennial “I’m one of you” meme – a great way to “connect to the audience” while skirting those pesky things known as “facts.”
Monday's MSNBC Countdown segment on this most recent lie:
OK, Sarah. I'm not a Christian, but you purport to be one. Here's today's lesson:
Ezekial 14:9: And if the prophet is deceived and speaks a word, I, the Lord, have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand against him and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
I Kings 22:23: Now therefore behold, the Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets; the Lord has declared disaster for you.
Matthew 4:7: Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’”
Time and again, Palin and her acolytes, in their vainglorious attempts to dumb down and tear the revolutionary, compassionate heart out of Christianity, put the "Lord God" of their faith to the test in ways that, if the book they claim to believe has any stock, holds the promise of immense payback for such selfish fools in the future.
