Palin Pledge Ignorance

Oy. She's a gaffe machine.

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

First, the Pledge of Allegiance didn't always exist. We all know that, but just how wrong is she? A quick google reveals it is a thing of the 20th Century, being declared our official national pledge in 1942. The "under God" clause she is so valiantly defending wasn't added until 1954, because we wouldn't be strong enough to beat the Reds without a little divine intervention. America has always proven herself to be a weak nation, after all, without the will to do difficult things.
