God Can Move Mountains … And Poll Numbers

We’ve noted several times in recent weeks that some of Sarah Palin’s more ardent right-wing supporters are firmly convinced that she has indeed been chosen and anointed by God and are comparing her to Queen Esther, declaring her “destined to be the matriarch of her people.”

It looks like all of this talk of her diving predestination is even starting to convince Palin herself that God wants her in the White House:

She added that while she doesn’t always appreciate the way reporters portray the GOP ticket, she’s been bolstered by the prayers of many of the campaign’s backers.

“But yeah, sometimes you do get depressed watching what it is that they’re reporting and the spin and some of the distortion of what our message is and what we stand for. Sometimes that, that gets draining,” she continued. “But it’s at events like these and our rallies that we are so energized and inspired and we know that we are not alone. We feel your strength and we feel the power of prayer, so many of you tell us that you are praying for us and praying for our country and that’s why we so appreciate you being here.”

Giving credit to a higher power for the day’s poll ratings, the Alaska governor told the roughly 500-person audience that things might be changing. “We even saw today, thank the Lord,” she said, looking upwards and raising her fist, “We saw some movement.”
