Palin Cops to Poor Choice in Prayer Partners Before VP Debate

Former campaign staffers are whining because Sarah Palin herself is whining that she couldn’t find anybody to pray with before she debated Joe Biden. CNN got the story wrong. Palin ended up choosing a poor prayer partner, daughter Piper, who simply couldn’t deliver. Piper is cute and all, but evidently has no connections upstairs.

It goes like this. Sarah Palin was making a rambling speech the other day to a GOP Dinner in Alaska. Well, don’t ya know, those Alaskans surely wanted to know what was going on down in the lower 48, so Sarah set off on a little whine about the campaign. Then she tells the story about looking for someone to pray with before her debate with Joe Biden. Here is a little bit from CNN:

“So I’m looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra,” she said of the moments before the debate. “And the McCain campaign, love –em, you know, they’re a lot of people around me, but nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray.”

As the audience laughed, Palin noted that she meant no disrespect to the McCain campaign and that ended up saying a prayer with her daughter Piper.

It is not clear exactly why Sarah Palin snubbed the staffers at prayer time. Perhaps she has a thing about germs and they didn’t have very clean hands. Or maybe Sarah Palin has supernatural powers and can see into the souls of McCain campaign staffers. What is obvious, though, is that Sarah Palin made a bad choice.

Sarah Palin ended up praying with her daughter Piper. Now Piper is a darling little girl, but Sarah Palin settling on her to pray with ended up costing her that debate with Joe Biden. Yes, Palin was right that she needed to pray, given her inexperience and tenuous hold on facts. So she picked Piper, who might have the best intentions in the world and a cute outfit from Nordstroms, but evidently doesn’t have much pull with the Almighty. The results are the results, after all – Palin lost that debate badly, and it was one any MILF worth her salt could have pulled off, if just she’d chosen a prayer partner with a little clout with the guy upstairs.

I’m guessing Sarah Palin chose Piper to pray with again just before Redoubt exploded last week. What we may have here is a woman with dreadful judgement as concerns choosing prayer partners. Heck, if I’m going to a tea party, or maybe looking for someone to skip stones with, then Piper is among my top choices. Not a doubt. But as a prayer partner? I’m thinking she may have cost her mother the debate, and maybe the election as well.
