You know, it's fun to speculate, to get in the mud, and find little things about the "opposition" party and their candidates. I've had more than a bit of fun here at Sarah Palin's expense in the last couple of days. But there's fun, and then there's just ragingly stupid.
If the 2006 Gubernatorial Candidate Questionnaire excerpted below is the real deal (and I'm aware that some things out on the inter-tubes are faked), Sarah Palin is not only unqualified, not only hard-right, not only lame because she is pro-"intelligent design," she's an idiot.

Question #11: Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
SP: 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.
Let me help you out there, Sarah. The Pledge of Allegiance was written in the late 1800s as an advertising tool to help sell American flags. It has changed many times over the years, and did not include "Under God" until the McCarthy years of the 1950s. Idiot.
