Only one tiny problem here: There was no Pledge of Allegiance during the era of the Founding Fathers (or Mothers, for that matter).
Q: Are you offended by the phrase "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
PALIN: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
We seem to recall that the pledge was a product of the late nineteenth century (and written by a Christian Socialist!) and amended by Cold War politicians who added the "Under God" phrase in the mid-1950s (in contrast to the Godless commies).
Despite Palin's creative historical fact-finding, we're still sure that she's a brilliant political theorist and deeply educated policy wonk with an immediate grasp of national and international issues.
Oh wait, that can't be right. Palin, as we have seen, is clueless about almost everything outside of Alaska.
