Palin asked Jesus for a gas pipeline and God for a plan in Iraq

By | Sep 08, 2008

What did you do this weekend? Me? I just sipped some superb Merlot from nearby what Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of that backward village called New York City, would describe as “cosmopolitan” San Francisco and watched some videos of Republican veep pick Sarah Palin.

Speaking at the Wasilla Assembly of God, her former church, last year, Governor Palin asked Jesus for a $30 billion natural gas pipeline in Alaska and called the war in Iraq “a task from God.” As she put it, “Our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God’s plan.”

Perhaps more surprising than Palin’s statements were those made by Pastor Ed Kalnins when he joined her on stage. “I believe Alaska is one of the refuge states in the last days, and hundreds of thousands of people are going to come to the state to seek refuge, and the church has to be ready to minister to them,” Kalnins said.

Well, I am off to shop for some Wasilla-appropriate clothes. Don’t want to be left behind, if you know what I mean.
