Nice Vetting…

Welcome to the fabulous historical realm of Sarah Palin — yeah, she’s qualified enough for the GOP:

2006 Alaska Primary Questionnaire Sent out by the Eagle Forum,

11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?

Sarah Palin : 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

Yep. Pledge of Allegiance, written 1892, by Francis Bellamy, a Christian AND and a Socialist. But definitely not a founder.

Of course, even then, "Under God" wasn’t part of the Pledge that Bellamy wrote. Those words were inserted in 1954 when Ike and the Congress wanted to show those Commies in the Kremlin that we could make up our own oaths, only with the Almighty in them. "Hey Comrade! Suck. On. That." USA! USA! USA!

This kind of history, of course, is hard to know. What with it being public record and easily available in such remote locales as "The Google". But, I guess, if you want to stretch the definition of the word "Founder" enough it could start with George Washington and end with the debut of "The Transformers" no one can stop you. And that is just what Sarah Palin is willing to do. She’s that qualified. She’s already manufacturing her own reality.

She was on the PTA and everything!

Huzzah.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
