Green Eggs!

If your way of struggling to maintain relevance resembles this one, then I’d recommend picking up a copy of “Undeserved Fame for Dummies”:

Sarah Palin joined Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly recently to condemn the critics of the National Day of Prayer, saying that the Judeo-Christian belief was the basis for American law and should continue to be used as a guiding force for creating future legislation.

Anyone else find the lumping of “judeo-” in these blatantly obvious paeans to the concept of a National Religion — basically a way of suggesting that if your beliefs differ you’re not a Real ‘Murkin — rather curious?  Jewish people didn’t exactly have it great in the early days either.

According to Palin, the recent backlash against the National Day of Prayer is proof that some people are trying to enact a “fundamental transformation of America” and to “revisit and rewrite history” in order to shift the Christian nation away from its spiritual roots.  Palins’s advice: “Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant — they’re quite clear — that we would create law based on the God of the bible and the ten commandments.

Well…there is one respect in which the bible, or an interpretation of it more accurately, influenced the founding law here, but I doubt being more specific about that one would help Bible Spice’s career…
