Be careful what you ask for

McCain’s campaign manager Rick Davis is fighting back against all the negative media attention on McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin as his VP running mate. Today, he called for the same level of scrutiny on Democrats Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Does he really want the same scrutiny for both sides? As I recall, Obama’s minister Jeremiah Wright got quite a bit more scrutiny than Palin is currently receiving. So just to make things even, is there anything that has been said in Palin’s church that could be controversial?

Well, as a matter of fact, two weeks ago Sarah Palin sat in a church and listened while David Brickner claimed that terrorist attacks against Jews are God’s judgement against them for not embracing Christianity. He elaborated:

Judgment is very real and we see it played out on the pages of the newspapers and on the television. It’s very real. When [Brickner’s son] was in Jerusalem he was there to witness some of that judgment, some of that conflict, when a Palestinian from East Jerusalem took a bulldozer and went plowing through a score of cars, killing numbers of people. Judgment — you can’t miss it.

Oh my!

Palin herself has spoken at her church, calling the Iraq War and the construction of an Alaskan natural gas pipeline “tasks from God”.
