It is stunning to read and hear about this “coin controversy.” At a recent speech in Milwaukee I discussed the troubling fact that we too often move God to the side in our public life, and gave as an example the shift of the words “In God We Trust” to the edge of the dollar coin. My comments were not about this President or this Congress – this change predated them. I was merely making a point about a disturbing trend in our country, after which I moved on to discuss some encouraging trends. People who try to read more into such straightforward comments are working hard to find a controversy where there is none.
- Sarah Palin
Thankfully, fellow Blogger for Sarah Palin Josh Painter had the story on it (and the culprit behind the “controversy”). If the fact that Sarah is subjected to the same shrill attacks and defamation as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck isn't obvious by now, this “controversy” should make it so.
The last sentence in Governor Palin's note here says it best; her critics are so determined to find some kind of controversy, some kind of scandal, anything in order to nail her political coffin, it does nothing but make them look like fools. Keep it up, foolish critics, keep it up.
