Sarah Palin sees "potential trouble in the future," seeks "divine intervention"

Many mainstream US media accounts of Sarah Palin's speech last night (NYT, WaPo, CNN) failed to report Palin's call for "divine intervention."  Only the Guardian, a British newspaper, quoted Palin's most outrageous statement in full.  Once again, the US media ignores facts necessary to telling the real story concerning Sarah Palin: the observation that millions of Americans -- including the mainstream media itself -- are bewitched by a veritable nutcase.

Responding to a question about what Congress's top priorities should be, Palin said:
"I think, kind of tougher to put our arms around, but allowing America’s spirit to rise again by not being afraid to kind of go back to some of our roots as a God fearing nation where we’re not afraid to say especially in times of potential trouble in the future here, where we’re not afraid to say, you know, we don’t have all the answers as fallible men and women so it would be wise of us to start seeking some divine intervention again in this country, so that we can be safe and secure and prosperous again. To have people involved in government who aren’t afraid to go that route, not so afraid of the political correctness that you know – they have to be afraid of what the media said about them if they were to proclaim their alliance to our creator." times of potential trouble in the future here... In this context, it is worth keeping in mind Sarah Palin's association with the so-called Third Wave movement, described as "a post-denominational church to take the world for the end times."
