Under a Bushel

bushel.jpgDan Gilgoff calls attention to the absence of faith or any reference to social conservatism on the website of Sarah Palin’s new political action committee, and indeed it’s striking. Even Mike Huckabee’s HUCK PAC lists “the family” among the things it cares about. But movement evangelicals like Huckabee and Palin don’t need to advertise who they are to the movement. They do feel the need to veil it from everybody else. That’s why no one could manage to lay hands on the sermons Huck gave when he was a Baptist minister. And why Palin was so exceptionally vague about her religious views and attachments during the campaign. Is anyone fooled? Nope.
