Primarily, the sense that the media has that Obama and Biden can't 'bite back' because they'll 'look mean' (read an article to that effect- CNN, I think). I'm sure that may sell with the public- that they're trouncing on the poor 'newcomer' to this part of politics. Meanwhile, she gets to harp on Obama's shortcomings (and I don't believe for a second that the Dems don't have plenty of ammunition- they're just saving it so that they can unload on somebody who doesn't enjoy the 'screening' that its believed Palin does).

My stance is: if you don't think she can handle herself under fire, and reasonably defend herself against whatever the Dems have for her, why in the hell would you want her to be anywhere near the Oval Office?

Case in point: Sunday church group- it's a widely older group, but my wife and I 'click' with the people there, so we continue going. Each week, a memeber of the class gives a lesson... not straight from the Bible, but something related, often associated with things going on in the world (either now, or in general).

This week, we got to listen to a rant about how so much is wrong with our Church, how people's faith is so easily shaken... and then, how Christianity should be the 'guiding light for humanity', how poor the global view is on Christianity, and how the Bible is the ONE TRUTH, and that if you *don't* believe that, you're not fully Christian.

Well... guess I'm 70 proof, then. I cannot, and will not, buy into the notion that there is one, true, source of truth- not even the Bible. As for 'guiding light', perhaps we could do something about our more hateful brethren (yeah, Phelps, I'm lookin' at you and yours). I'm a big fan of the idea of a blanket parties in this case. Of COURSE we have a poor rep... we don't do anything about ourselves.

Lurve me!

Your result for The Mythological God Test...

Frey


Frey was, just like his twin sister Freya, a member of the Vanir family and thus a God of fertility and love. Along with Odin and Thor he was one of the most popular Norse Gods, and received many offerings. He was said to have control of the weather, both rain and sunshine, thus the fertility of the earth. Prayers were also offered to Frey for a good future, peace and prosperity.


Frey is described as being handsome, powerful, merciful and kind. Fitting considered he was - let’s be frank - the God of sex. His cult included songs and actions which shocked contemporary and later Christians, who condemned them as indecent, which they of course were not to the participants in the cult themselves.


Frey lived in Alfheim, "Elf-home", a name which indicates a possible connection between Vanir and Elves. His servant was the Goddess Beyla, who was all about bees and dairy. Not to far off, I think, as “Milk and Honey” and the things that Frey stands for are equally sweet.
