Palin can't even tell the truth about her own faith

You will have to trust me on this." She wrote it in the voice of and signed it as "Trig's Creator, Your Heavenly Father."

That Palin is a piece of work! I heard an entire segment on Democracy Now! about her religious beliefs (she is a Dominionist). I am really frightened! She is worse than W. In Bush's case, he is at least well educated (not that it has done him much good). In Palin's case, she is ignorant AND has disdain for intellectuals. She believes this end of the world crap and sells her political policies by invoking God. Truly scary.
