Haven’t done a Thought for the Day for a while – too busy with Lambeth and other stuff. So here is one about Sarah Palin. We went to Glasgow last night and I became convinced that she was going to blow up and resign before I could get it delivered [ouch!] at 7.20 this morning.
One of the best things about what clergy and bishops do is that we move at all sorts of levels in society. I know that much of what I deal with can be a bit shambolic. What interests me is that every other level that I visit is equally shambolic. Was she vetted? Well they may have short-circuited the processes a bit. How well did John McCain know her before naming her as his running mate. Well they had spoken twice.
I know she is the darling of the Christian right. But I think she will cost him the election. Not – by the way – because of the sad story of her daughter or anything like that. More because of that scary feeling that we may not yet know everything that there is to know.
