Sarah Palin, responding to a 2006 gubernatorial questionnaire from the arch-conservative Eagle Forum…
Q: Are you offended by the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?As every schoolboy (and girl) knows (or should), the pledge wasn't even a notion for over a century after the fathers founded. Officially, in fact, John McCain is older than the Pledge of Allegiance.
SP: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, it is good enough for me and I'll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
