From "Hockey Mom" to "Your Heavenly Father"

Posted: Updated:

"Trig's Creator, Your Heavenly Father."

That's how Sarah Palin signed an e-mail announcing her son's birth. She wrote it to help her friends make sense of "this mixed-up world you live in down there on Earth."

In case your brain is having trouble processing this before your morning caffeine: Sarah Palin writes e-mails in the voice of God.

And Obama is presumptuous?

Obama caught flack from the religious right, or whatever they're calling themselves these days, for saying that the question of when life begins is "above my pay grade." Yesterday he was obliged to apologize for being "flip," adding, "All I meant to communicate was that I don't presume to be able to answer these kinds of theological questions."

And Obama calls himself a Christian?! Show me where in the Bible it says, "How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! For who has known the mind of the Lord, who has been his counselor?" Real Christians like Sarah Palin and George Bush not only know the mind of the Lord, they speak in his voice.

Robert McElvaine calls these people Jesus thieves. But few have been quite as brazen about it as Sarah "Your Heavenly Father" Palin.

The MSM continues to perpetuate the entirely GOP-invented meme about the Temple of Obama. Let's see if an actual e-mail from a candidate who thinks she is God gets remotely similar traction.
