Palin’s prayer remark angers former staffers – CNN (3/26/09):
Some of Sarah Palin‘s former campaign aides are frustrated with the Alaska governor for remarking in a lengthy, freewheeling speech that she had refused to pray with them before last October’s vice presidential debate.
Palin told the story in a speech to a GOP dinner in Alaska last Friday.
“So I’m looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra,” she said of the moments before the debate. “And the McCain campaign, love ‘em, you know, they’re a lot of people around me, but nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray.”
I’m not the world’s foremost expert on the batshit version of Christianity Palin practices, but doesn’t any willing person make a perfectly fine prayer buddy?
So what happened?
As the audience laughed, Palin noted that she meant no disrespect to the McCain campaign and that ended up saying a prayer with her daughter Piper.
Given the context, I’m going to go ahead and guess that Piper isn’t the one who got knocked up. Am I right?
