A Question or Two for Palin's Evangelical Supporters

(Not that any of them are likely to read these questions, but WTF.)

1) You guys are falling all over her like she was the second coming of the Left Behind series, or some such. You've definitely decided she's One Of You, and whatever minor faults she might have, she's just peachy with you overall.

2) You have to have noticed by now that she's a habitual liar. She's lied about (a) her support for earmarks in general, she's lied over and over again about (b) the Bridge to Nowhere, she's even lied about (c) having been to Iraq (and Ireland too, for what it's worth), and if she hasn't outright lied about selling the state jet on eBay, she's certainly (d) gone out of her way to leave the impression that she sold the plane on eBay, which she hadn't.

3) Each of those constitutes what the Commandments (you know, Exodus 20, Deuteronomy 5, Moses coming down from Mt. Sinai with stone tablets*) call 'bearing false witness.' Doesn't that bother you?

Especially because:

4) If you folks can't be trusted to tell the truth about the things of this world, how can you possibly expect anyone to believe you about things that aren't of this world?


*When a not particularly religious gay man thinks your memory needs jogging about the basics of your faith, maybe your memory needs jogging about the basics of your faith.

You might want to read what he says about evangelicals and torture, too. If I may be so crass as to use this choice of words, you're not exactly doing great things for the Lord's 'brand.'

Nice blog. Do not forget she lied about firing her cook when she just reassigned her to another job title and then she still cooked for her kids too.

She lies about the pipeline as well.

And about the teleprompter.

Hell, it's starting to be easier to keep track of the things they're actually telling the truth about.
