Fresh from her interview with David Brody of Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network where she voiced her support for a federal marriage amendment and complained that both she and God were being mocked, Sarah Palin has found time to reach out to an even bigger Religious Right audience, this time granting an interview to James Dobson.
From the Colorado Springs Gazette:
One of Sarah Palin’s most prominent local supporters, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, didn’t go to her rally Monday at Sky Sox stadium, but he did manage to sneak in a phone interview with her after the event. The 18-minute interview will air Wednesday on Dobson’s “Focus on the Family” radio show.
Tom Minnery, senior vice president of government and public policy of Focus on the Family Action, the lobbying arm of Focus, wouldn’t divulge the details of the interview. But he said Dobson spoke with Palin about the pressure of the campaign and the attacks on her since Sen. John McCain chose her in August as his running mate.
“She is smart, articulate and has a Christian testimony, so we can see why the national media is out to get her,” Minnery said Monday.
Dobson had once said he would never vote for McCain. But soon after McCain chose Palin, Dobson said he vote for the Arizona senator for president.
Minnery said Dobson is impressed by the Alaska governor’s conservative values, including her opposition to abortion, even in cases of rape and incest.
“Her future in politics is bright,” Minnery said. “People are drawn to her.”
Dobson’s interview with Palin can be heard Wednesday.
Considering that Dobson declared that “a lot of people were praying, and I believe Sarah Palin is God’s answer” when he learned of the nomination, it is probably safe to assume that this is not going to be a particularly difficult interview for either of them.
