    When federal judges in San Francisco ruled in 2002 that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional because it included the phrase "under God," Sarah Palin was not amused. Palin, who at the time was Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, quickly drafted a terse letter to the editor of a San Francisco newspaper.

    I'm surprised PMSNBC is mentioning this. There are maybe 3-4 metro areas in the US where it could hurt her. It'll resonate everywhere else.

    which doesnt appear anywhere in the constitution
    what a constiotution DOES say, however, is that the government can not restrict religion or establish a state mandated religion

    On a side note, here Ninja, MSNBC is a disgrace , the entire network has lost all it's ethics in this election. The lastest commercial running only on MSNBC mocking John McCains cancer, produced by Howard Deans brother is a good example. Since Jeffery Immelt took over G.E. 7 years ago. they have constantly lost money in just about every single division. I have stock in G.E. and can tell the stock holders are mad as hell. So anything that comes from MSNBC does not surprise me. However, they will soon be sold . from what I hear, . Recently asked about possible G.E. Entertainment divisions that he would be interested in News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch said that "MSNBC is not all that attractive as they are have been a constant strain on the bottom line for G.E. , but some divisions are, such as USA Network which News Corp. would be interested in buying.

    personally I watch PBS mostly they seemed to be the most unbiased news out there. They also have commentators from both sides!

    "One of the amendments to the Constitution... expressly declares that 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,' thereby guarding in the same sentence and under the same words, the freedom of religion, of speech, and of the press; insomuch that whatever violates either throws down the sanctuary which covers the others." --Thomas Jefferson
