In 2006, a questionnaire was sent to all candidates for the gubernatorial race in Alaska.
One of the questions was this:
11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
Here is Sarah Palin‘s answer:
SP: 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.
Of course, anyone who has done 10 seconds of research into the matter knows that “Under God” was not added to the Pledge until 1954 in reaction to those “Godless Communists.”
In fact, the original Pledge wasn’t written until the late 1800s, long after our Founding Fathers were buried.
Not that any of this matters to her. She’s just going to stick to her Conservative Christian talking points.
