To the apocalypse lobby, Sarah Palin is everything that they had hoped George W. Bush would be; and more.
Making what a lot of fundies consider a downpayment on the rapture, Bush told Palestinian leaders at the White House in June ’03 that he was instructed by God to remove Saddam from power:
“God told me, ‘George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq,’ and I did.”
Sarah is down with that. AP reports that last June, she told ministry students at her former church to pray for the troops being sent to Iraq:
“Our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God.”
She also asked that same group to pray for a $30 billion gas pipeline to be built in the state, saying it was “God’s will.”
Personally, if I were God, I’d sue for libel.
