Apparently, it was God's plan for her to quit being governor and to become a disingenuous commentator for Fox News.

Yes, where are all the John Edwards posts? He didn't get NEARLY as many posts as Palin? Wonder why?

Well with her vast knowledge of Korea alone she should fit right in at Fox. When you recognize that she felt Saddam attacked us on 911, she's a shoe-in!

Maybe to you there is no way to prove it, but there sure is no way, you cannot disprove it either. Every one in Sports now, can't thank God if you have your way. I have all kinds of friends, different races, different party in politics, they say the same thing, it is God's Plan. Maybe God does not even exist to you. What may be a meaningless statement to you, is not to others, don't judge, you would probably not like people judging you.

Trying to disprove a negative would be a silly waste of time. You can't disprove that your house is full of ghosts or that the Tooth Fairy exists either. There's as much of a possibility that ghosts and the Tooth Fairy exist as there is that any gods exist.

Don't judge? We'd be a bunch of uneducated idiots if we never judged anyone or anything. Making judgments is something that's required in order to get through life. If anything, I think the world needs MORE scrutiny and more analysis. By saying, "Don't judge", one is essentially saying, "Don't use your brain."
