Disarming Candor and Staggering Presumption, Sarah Prays For Open Doors

November 11, 2008 · 2 Comments

Sarah Palin is praying that God opens some doors.  And if He opens up some national doors for 2012 (even a crack), she intends to walk through those doors.

As for me, I’m going to continue to view with great suspicion anybody who expects God to talk to them.  Where I grew up they called people who heard voices telling them what to do schizophrenic.

Palin is attempting to use the residual glow that she still enjoys to improve her now-tarnished image by giving multiple interviews with reporters like Matt Lauer and Greta Van Susteren.  Alessandra Stanley of the International Tribune writes “But so far, viewers have mostly witnessed some of the very traits – disarming candor and staggering presumption – that drove some McCain campaign aides to leak damaging accusations about her.”   In those, Sarah opines that the loss of McCain-Palin was due to:

  • Hispanics
  • Obama’s money advantage
  • The “R” next to their names (backlash against Republicans)

I guess she had nothing to do with the loss of the ticket.  I think the McCainiacs have gone overboard trying to blame poor Sarah for all of their woes, but to claim that her presence on the ticket or the extremely poorly executed campaign had nothing to do with their loss sounds like magical thinking.  But then again, Sarah is expecting God to tell her what to do next, and if that isn’t magical thinking, I don’t know what is.

    I can see by your comments that you have little regard for women, but, no regard for God is your biggest problem. Don’t worry though, you will not have a chance to re-think your opinion when the politics of today will make no difference, but your denial of God will be the critical issue. No need to look around when the Christian you are speaking to is gone from your sight in an instant, and you, my friend, will be left to continue your battles here on earth and in hell. Be on guard, as eternal life will pass you by and you may have a much larger problem than Mrs. Palin.

    From the author: Actually I have high regard for women, but little tolerance for fools. Also I don’t know why Derinda presumes that I deny God. I was a leader in Campus Crusade for Christ in College and a youth group leader in several evangelical churches for years. It’s true that my religious beliefs have changed significantly since that time. But I don’t think that’s really the issue. My point was that Mrs. Palin couches her political ambition in terms of hearing from God, something that I think is dangerous.
