    I don't know if this is true, but someone told me that when Sarah Palin was on Glenn Beck, he asked her who her "favorite" founding father was and she couldn't name one. In fact, she said, "All of them". Now, there are some names that everyone knows. Do you believe "All of them" or do you believe she seriously couldn't name a single one?

    Is that story true?

    I believe she couldn't single out just one particular founding father. So many of them were influential in the shaping of America. I myself would be hard pressed to choose just one favorite.

    Who cares?

    Sarah Palin is a pep rally at best she is not a viable political candidate for anything.

    All she is and ever will be is a rich celebrity talking head. But then again maybe that's why all you people are fixated on her. After all who wouldn't want her kind of meteoric success and multi million dollar income?

    If you're that concerned about it, why search online for the clip. Then you can find out in context what she said.

    Quite frankly, I dont really care.

    She probably thought they were a rock band.

    Hey, there are some good Christian bands, and I say that as someone strongly anti-religious :)
