"Sarah Palin: God wrote on his hand too"

"At an Ohio Right to Life fundraiser Friday night, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin once again defended the notes she wrote on her hand during last month's Tea Party Convention. She said she didn't have a good answer to media criticism at the time, but now she has one: God did it too.

A supporter sent her the biblical passage Isaiah 49:16: "See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me."

"If what was good enough for God, scribbling on the palm of his hand, it's good enough for me, for us," Palin said. "In that passage he says, I wrote your name on the palm of my hand to remember you. And I'm like okay, I'm in good company.
Putting the absurdity of that post-facto justification for her teleprompter hypocrisy aside, the appeal to "God did it too!" is just one more reason why Sarah Palin should be kept as far away from the political power as possible. I'm not sure the world needs someone advocating the stoning of shellfish eaters with her finger on the nuclear button.
