Sarah Palin: Pray With Me

From Ben Smith and Memeorandum, check out this video of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's speech to a Republican dinner in Alaska:

I like this part from the transcript:

"So I'm looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra," she said. "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 crowd laughed, Palin grinned and said she meant no disrespect to the McCain campaign. She said she ultimately prayed with her daughter Piper.
I'm like that. Sometimes I just want to say a little prayer for strength. I don't do it often, but I've done it like that throughout my life, and I've never thought of my self as "hyper-religious." Sometimes you just need a little extra strength.

God bless Sarah Palin.

I wonder if God told her to ignore the content of the questions she was asked at the debate and to substitute winks and catchprases for substantive replies.

Biden must have prayed too, and was told to lie about how the US and France drove Hizbolla out of Lebanon, gave him the wrong answer to the question about the constitution regarding the duties of the VP, and about 8 or 9 other fibs, and outright lies.

How many years until Piper Palin can fun for governor? We might be just seeing the start of a Palin dynasty in Alaska.

She's being judgemental again - implying no one in the McCain campaign prays. She's mean and foolish

It's "Lost Cause" mythology. She's telling the "base" that McCain lost because he wasn't Christiany enough.

Think of where Sarah Palin was, the purpose of the venue from which we can infer her purpose, when she made her statement that she could find no one with whom she wanted to pray - then consider this scriptural food for thought:

Matthew 6:1-6 (New International Version)

Matthew 6


1"Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

2"So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.

3But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

4so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

5"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.

6But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

I couldn't hear the audio clearly. What was Piper's punch line in the end of the clip?
