Palin and Jefferson.

There's a sort of strange revisionist history that suggests that the United States was founded as a Christian nation, when in reality it was founded as a secular government with a separation between church and state. My guess is she simply accepts the alternative history, the one that gets voted down 9-3 by the Texas School Board.

"Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the montebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus." - Thomas Jefferson

I love the word montebanks.
