"In Sarah We Trust"

Just in case anyone thinks I've gotten over my case of Palin Derangement Syndrome: I though things were better and everything was going okay, and then she opened up her mouth again. This time at a Right-to-Life rally in Wisconsin where she veered off-topic in her winsome, folksy style of incoherent rambling (as opposed to mine). Maybe because she's been gloating over her new hoard of cash since quitting Alaska, but Sarah Palin seems to have become fixated on another new bizarre obsession: the conspiratorial shift of "In God We Trust" on our coinage to the edge:

"In addition to the suggestion that government officials would consider hastening the death of the infirm or handicapped, she began her remarks with a puzzling commentary on the design of newly minted dollar coins.

Noting that there had been a lot of “change” of late, Palin recalled a recent conversation with a friend about how the phrase “In God We Trust” had been moved to the edge of the new coins.

“Who calls a shot like that?” she demanded. “Who makes a decision like that?”

She added: “It’s a disturbing trend.”

Sacrilegeous graven images and idolatry issues aside, of all the problems facing our world today, this is what preoccupies her?
Camp Robbers also have a thing for bright, shiny objects, have about as much of an attention span, and probably a bit more intelligence. Not much though.

Awesome and bogus indeed.
