Palin requests Prayer Shield

… to protect her against the LameStream Media:

“This nation needs you,” Palin told the women. “Know the facts. Stand for what’s right. Don’t be discouraged by the mocking of those who want to claim we just cling to our religion. I’m the first to admit — yeah, I do cling to my faith. That’s all I’ve got.” […]

(Well, that and the $12million God-given dollars you’ve liberated from these poor suckers.  But do go on…)

She asked for the women — who greeted her with an enthusiastic standing ovation — to provide a “prayer shield” to strengthen her against what she said was “deception” in the media.

A Prayer Shield — and there are 388 Prayer Warriors who are up to the task.  Too bad they weren’t around to pray away the satanic Katie Couric.

    JJ – you and I might not believe in the power of prayers but to those that do, things happen. How else can one explain people who visit Lourdes and get healed,etc.etc.
    What about the book “secrets” … I have not read it… but know of folks who swear that it works. All you have to do is focus, focus, focus (rhymes niceley with “hocus-pocus” doesn’t it?) and you get whatever your heart desires, even that hunk you have your eyes on, according to the author.
    You won’t believe the number of people who believe in the power of the mind to move mountains…. so let them, if it keeps them happy.
    happy weekend.

    I prefer my prayer in assault form rather than shield.

    MariaS:

    So what! The same proportion of people that go to a Hot Dog Stand or to an Esso Station will get healed. Lourdes is a money making operation for the boys at the Vatican (Lawyers R expensive!).

    As for the book Secrets…it’s nonsense. I read it. It’s Bull$hit 101 for the rubes. “If you believe something, it will happen…tra la la la…” All it takes is one lotto winner to say, “I read Secrets, and I believed that I would win the lotto…and I did!!!” OK, then, how about the other 2 million people that bought tickets and believed that they would win? See my point? It’s about statistics…not faith. If you want to read a real book on this, try Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable.

    Sawah knows her base. Period. Nothing to do with faith, unless it’s her faith in the almighty dollar.

    And this is the superstitious nitwit who some think should be entrusted with nuclear launch codes??

    Shudder.

    It’s like when she promises at the beginning of a speech that she’s going to shed light on energy extraction, the whys, the hows…but then goes on to give her life story in word salad form, but nothing whatsoever on anything else. (I read through the speech she gave in Hamilton, cause I honestly wanted to know if she had some info on the energy sector. I should’ve read Secrets instead.) Right now, I’d say she is definitely the world’s foremost flimflam artist.

    Quite right, balb, it’s very worrisome, especially seeing as the Alaskan tax code and oil and gas regime were obviously inspired by Leviticus.

    Boy, has this woman got you people freaked!! What ya’ll don’t understand about American politics and American political rhetoric is apparently a lot.

    Ooooh Peter, please fill us in with everything you know. It promises to be so illuminating, in a Palin speech kinda way.

    (If you were a careful reader, you’d note that JJ and most of the rest of us aren’t exactly “freaked”, it’s more a curious fascination with the way a certain movement takes her seriously.)

  8. 8 Peter Sunday, April 18, 2010 at 7:12 am

    Brebis, I’m hardly surprised you don’t like her, but all this talk of how wacky and dangerous she is because she talks that old-time religion is a little fevered, no? Americans have been injecting this stuff into their political rhetoric since Yorktown, and in language that can sound jarringly in-your-face to us quiet, deferential Canadians, but it’s amazing how hard-nosed secular they become in office. Besides, were you folks as worried when this guy was walking around with the nuclear codes in his briefcase beside his Bible?

  9. 9 brebis noire Sunday, April 18, 2010 at 7:55 am

    “Besides, were you folks as worried when this guy was walking around with the nuclear codes in his briefcase beside his Bible?”

    Obviously, what you misunderstand about our objections to mixing religion and politics is an awful lot. I remember Carter as a born-again Christian, and I also remember how he was hated by the major elements of the Christian right (the nascent Moral Majority of the era). He wasn’t hawkish enough, he was perceived as weak and conciliatory, and more lately he has been vilified by the same faction as being too pro-Palestinian. However, I also remember him as being the one who cracked down on left-wing movements in Central America, so to me his record is mixed to say the least. I don’t remember the period from 1976-1980 as being a particularly “hot” time regarding nuclear threats, at least not from Carter himself.

    I don’t object to people being religious while in office. I don’t even object to Palin’s religion, per se. However, I do object to the way she stirs up violent sentiments that she doesn’t understand and cannot control, and uses gun metaphors (not to mention her real violence against animals). I am thankful she has no real power.

    Ah. So she’s…what? Kidding? Lying? Schizophrenic?

    “‘…yeah, I do cling to my faith. That’s all I’ve got.'”

    Oh, good! Let’s tie an anchor to it and drop it in the ocean off Point Barrow and see how well it works, then…

    And she wouldn’t need a shield if she’d quit using that mouth of hers as a Gatling gun, firing off rounds indiscriminately in all directions without thought or control. Stupid cow.

  12. 12 Cornelius T.Zen Sunday, April 18, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    Good morrow, all!
    Now, now, Janus, you should not call Sarah Palin a stupid cow. No self-respecting cow would be caught dead in the same pasture as her. OTOH, she should lie low during Thanksgiving. Turkeys are another matter altogether.
    God bless and keep Sarah Palin – somewhere in the mountains of Alaska – CTZen

    MariaS – I really don’t care if people believe in the Power Of Prayer, or prayer shields, or whatever, unless it affects me somehow. My point was more or less what a great manipulator Palin is — that she is so attuned to her audience she knows the right things to say at any given speech. I’m starting to be really impressed with her in that respect.

  14. 14 JJ Sunday, April 18, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    Dr.Prole – Those were the good old days, eh? 😆

    Sawah knows her base. Period. Nothing to do with faith, unless it’s her faith in the almighty dollar.

    That’s right, that was my point. She’s something else as far as understanding her audience. It’s a skill that very few people have.

    And this is the superstitious nitwit who some think should be entrusted with nuclear launch codes??

    I wonder how much she really buys in to her own rhetoric. (Not that I’d want her in charge of the nuclear football, for a variety of reasons.)

    She’s good!

    Boy, has this woman got you people freaked!!

    I’m not coming out from under my bed until she retires!!!

    Good morrow, all!
    It was reported that Sarah Palin attended a university where she reportedly majored in journalism. Apparently she minored in ADD. She never submitted anything resembling either a newsarticle or opinion editorial to the school newspaper.
    She did not complete her term as mayor of Wasilla. She did not complete her term as Governor of Alaska. She cannot string together a coherent, cogent sentence in the English language. She cannot maintain a stream of thought that resembles an idea.
    Some readers of this blog think she’d make a cool, peachy-keen, well-versed in all aspects of the job President of the Benighted States. These people are also products of the education systems of the Benighted States.
    I think it’s about time that the hillbilly half of the Excited States joined the next century – which for them would be the 19th. As for the rest of us, who use our brains for something a little more exciting than keeping our ears apart, I think a smart, cool, calm black man sounds a little more encouraging for the future of the world. – CTZen.
