Instant Karma! What kind of sermons did Palin sit through?
Brickner also described terrorist attacks on Israelis as God's "judgment of unbelief" of Jews who haven't embraced Christianity.Now this doesn't mean Palin agrees with this sort of thing. Maybe she thought that was a horrible assertion to make. But given what the Republicans tried to do to Obama over Reverend Wright, I think it's only fair to ask what her views are on this.
"Judgment is very real and we see it played out on the pages of the newspapers and on the television. It's very real. When [Brickner's son] was in Jerusalem he was there to witness some of that judgment, some of that conflict, when a Palestinian from East Jerusalem took a bulldozer and went plowing through a score of cars, killing numbers of people. Judgment — you can't miss it."
Can I just say that Palin is not ready for prime time? Yes, we need to be ready for the Nixonian elitist resentment backlash thing, as pointed out by Lackoff and Coates, but I really think it's getting beyond the point where that sort of thing will be greater than the overall negative impact.
