softball.jpgBrody got his 20 minutes with Sarah Palin, and this is the best he could do?

Brody: There have been some shots taken at you…regarding your Christian faith…The Pentecostal stuff, the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Do you want to clear up exactly what you believe in and so that the record can be set straight a little bit? Because there have been some editorials and others taking shots at you regarding —
Palin: Yeah, and I think the saddest part of that is that faith, not just my faith, faith and God in general has been mocked through this campaign, and that breaks my heart and that is unfair for others who share a faith in God and chose to worship our Lord in whatever private manner that they deem fit and my faith has always been pretty personal. I haven’t really worn it on my sleeve. I haven’t been out there preaching it. I’ve always been of the mind that you walk the walk. You just don’t have to be talking the talk about your beliefs, so just wanting maybe my life to be able to reflect my faith.

Like, no follow-up about who exactly has been mocking faith and God in general through this campaign? Barack Obama? The DNC? Cable News? The UnAmerican Part of America? Bill Maher? And anyway, what walk, exactly, are you walking, guv? Can you tell the folks watching the Christian Broadcasting Network what kind of a Christian you are? Like, why’d you trade the Assembly of God church where you grew up for a non-denominational Bible church?
C’mon, David.

    I’m surprised Brody didn’t follow up. Unlike a lot of the conservative media and commentariat, Brody is usually willing to press a little more and ask hard questions when it comes to people’s faith.
    It is amazing how little we know about Palin’s faith and how little complaining there is about it.
