An email titled "Our Little Sarah" containing various points about Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's policies, decisions, beliefs and platform planks.




The Truth:
We got many of these from subscribers and visitors to TruthorFiction.com We found these points posted in the Daily Kos and various other blog sites so we thought we would try to address them one by one.
Depending on one's perspective, some of these could be good or bad points for a Vice Presidential candidate.

Palin recently said that the war in Iraq is "God's task."- Fiction!


A recent Reuters article led us to the Assemblies of God Church where she addressed a graduating class of students in Wasilla, Alaska. We found the video and the Governor's exact words after she mentioned that her son who just joined the Army and being deployed to Iraq was: "Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right, also for this country. That our leaders, our national leaders, are sending them out for on a task that is from God. That is what we have to make sure what we are praying for that there is a plan and that plan is God's plan. So, bless them with your prayers, your prayers of protection over our soldiers."

I think your little "proof" thingie is broken. This very first one contradicts itself.

And I notice you failed to post up the Library one. That one is VERY easy.

So long as one point is possibly true, then it's okay to lie about the rest. Right?
And, no, it isn't contradictory. She's saying "Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right, also for this country. (PRAY) That our leaders, our national leaders, are sending them out for on a task that is from God. That is what we have to make sure what we are praying for that there is a plan and that plan is God's plan. So, bless them with your prayers, your prayers of protection over our soldiers."
She's not saying it's a task from God. She's saying to pray that it is a task from God. Basically, PRAY it's for the right reasons.

It's funny how things look just in words, isn't it?

WRITTEN, but that is another topic.

She asked the Librarian what she could do about the books. The Librarian opposed censorship in any form, including threatening to censor books prepublished.

When a politician exerts pressure on a city employee regarding censorship, when that politician has a history of firing those who don't agree with her, censorship can simply be implied "if you allow the book, you won't have a job..." . That is what was opposed by the public.

Actually NO, no lies are how it should be. And neither should blatant obfuscation of what we know. Much could be cleared up if Palin would just be allowed to be interviewed and vetted like other national politicians. Apparently there is stuff to hide.

As for the Praying that it is a "task from God". Duh, If she didn't believe it was a task from God, I don't imagine she would be praying for it to be. Not only reading the transcript but watching the video, I did get the impression that she believes it is a divine mission. That is her right.

I just don't want that theology in the White House for any longer than the last eight years. We are screwed up enough from Bushie's divine conversations.

John McCain's VP pick is the Governor of Alaska , a unknown hockey mom named Sarah Palin that no one ever heard of. The only other job she had in politics was the mayor of a small town known as Wasilla , Alaska , and now she has the oppor tunity to be on a ticket opposite of Barack Obama, the first black man she's ever seen." –Bill Maher

"This isn't a presidential ticket, this is a sitcom. The maverick and the MILF." –Bill Maher

"Are you kidding me, the mayor of Wasilla , Alaska ? Yeah, that's who you want in the White House during a time of crisis. When she got a phone call at 3 in the morning, it was because a moose had gotten in the garbage can." –Bill Maher

"I think this is pertinent because McCain has been running this campaign based on 'we're at war, it's a dangerous world out there. The Democrats don't get that. I John McCain am the only one standing between the blood-thirsty Al Qaedas and you. But if I die, this stewardess can handle it.'" –Bill Maher

"When they were vetting her for this job, like three seconds ago, she said, quote, I'm not making this up, 'What is it exactly that the VP does every day?' Let me field that for you, Sarah. They start wars, they enrich their friends, they subvert the Constitution, and they shoot people in the face. That's what the Vice President does." –Bill Maher

"She's not bad looking. She looks like one of those women in the Van Halen videos who takes off her glasses, shakes out her hair, and then all of a sudden, she's in high heels and a bikini. All of a sudden, I am FOR drilling in Alaska ." --Jimmy Kimmel

"Not only is she young, they're saying she's the prettiest candidate for Vice President since John Edwards." --Jimmy Kimmel

"There was some breaking news out of Dayton , Ohio today, where Republican presidential candidate John McCain introduced the world to his third wife." –Jon Stewart

"Now obviously Sen. John McCain has made an enormous amount over Barack Obama's lack of experience, so it seems curious that the 72-year-old, four-to-five time face cancer guy would choose a running mate whose resume appears to be more suited for a Northern Exposure reunion show." –Jon Stewart

"Alaska Gov. Sarah Pallin is John McCain's choice. Here's what we know about her: her name is Sarah Palin." --Jay Leno

"Actually, it was kind of a smart choice. McCain went with a woman because he didn't want to have to be in a position to have to get CPR from Mitt Romney." –Jay Leno

"Palin and McCain are a good pair. She's pro-life and he's clinging to life." –Jay Leno

"Today President Bush called Gov. Palin and congratulated her. Bush told Palin the job of Vice President is very important because as Vice President, you get to tell the President what to do." –Jay Leno

"The McCain people believe that Americans will disregard her inexperience because they will fall in love with her story. She was a runner up in the 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant., which may sound trite, but you try walking in high-heeled snow shoes." –Bill Maher

"And the trump card, why Americans will fall in love with her, she's got five kids. How can you not vote for someone who has five children, including an infant. Some touching details about the infant: it has Down Syndrome, she had it when she was 43 years old, and it looks a lot like John Edwards." –Bill Maher

"Five kids? Does anyone in that party understand the con cept of pulling out?" –Bill Maher

Pray that our guys can KILL better than their guys can KILL.

So what happens if, in the end we find out that there is a singular God of many faces to whom EVERYONE prays, Christian, Muslim, Hindi, Buddhist, Women and He has to, prior to every battle between the ants of civilizations flip a coin to decide which prayer for divine support in battle to go with.

So we see the scene, really big screen, at least 150 inch, 4096dpi, bitchin remote. God, Zeus, Mohammad, Vishnu, Krishna and Buddha are kicked back ready for the big game. Kali of course is stuck in the kitchen to serve food, who else can carry everything in one run.

All is well, the Battle is ready to start then the prayers come. First one side, the Muslims who pray for victory, bringing up the thought of the 72 virgins and asking for divine intervention. Kali throws a darted look at Mohammad for that sexist little "virgin bait" then passes the Guinness all around. Next comes the prayer from the Christians, not as loud but twice as long, asking for forgiveness for something the other and blessing for damned near everything and then victory in battle.

God looks over at Buddha who simply shrugs his shoulders, holds up his hands and gives that "We don't sing 'onward christian soldiers' in MY church" look. Mohammad, still embarrassed from the look from Kali says that Zeus and Kharma should call this one. Zeus looks down makes an analytical study, sees all the pros and cons of the situation and submits his opinion in a very showy bolt of lightening.

Kharma, thinking back to all the death and suffering caused by both sides for the past few thousand years looks at the teams, thinks about it and says, All War, No Winner.

Peace, out.
