Alaska Politics Blog : Palin blessed three years ago to be free from 'witchcraft' (Updated)
Palin once blessed to be free from 'witchcraft'

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A grainy YouTube video surfaced Wednesday showing Sarah Palin being blessed in her hometown church three years ago by a Kenyan pastor who prayed for her protection from "witchcraft" as she prepared to seek higher office.
The video shows Palin standing before Bishop Thomas Muthee in the pulpit of the Wasilla Assembly of God church, holding her hands open as he asked Jesus Christ to keep her safe from "every form of witchcraft."
"Come on, talk to God about this woman. We declare, save her from Satan," Muthee said as two attendants placed their hands on Palin's shoulders. "Make her way my God. Bring finances her way even for the campaign in the name of Jesus. ... Use her to turn this nation the other way around."
I bet the Republicans are going to be glad they spent so much time making sure that a candidate's preacher was a legitimate campaign issue. Now that the press is actually beginning to grow a spine regarding JMWWAPOW and Caribou Barbie, maybe some intrepid reporter will ask the Governor if she feels that she's safe from witches now. That should be entertaining.
