Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are

From Yahoo! News:

Palin once blessed to be free from 'witchcraft'

By GARANCE BURKE, Associated Press Writer Thu Sep 25, 12:27 AM ET

A grainy YouTube video surfaced Wednesday showing Sarah Palin being blessed in her hometown church three years ago by a Kenyan pastor who prayed for protection from "witchcraft" as she prepared to seek higher office.

The video shows Palin standing before Bishop Thomas Muthee in the pulpit of the Wasilla Assembly of God church, holding her hands open as he asked Jesus Christ to keep her safe from "every form of witchcraft."

"Come on, talk to God about this woman. We declare, save her from Satan," Muthee said as two attendants placed their hands on Palin's shoulders. "Make her way my God. Bring finances her way even for the campaign in the name of Jesus. ... Use her to turn this nation the other way around."

Palin formally announced her bid for governor a few months later, in October 2005.

Palin does not say anything on the video and keeps her head bowed throughout the blessing.


Palin may well be "a cocky whacko" (Lincoln Chaffee) but McCain's the one with the demonic possession problem.

What's called for is an exorcism. Can't you see Bishop Muthee wearing a bear pelt, moose antlers and a necklace made from wolves' teeth, dancing in circles around McCain as he shakes baby Trig's rattle?
