GIBSON: You said recently, in your old church, "Our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God." Are we fighting a holy war?
PALIN: You know, I don't know if that was my exact quote.
GIBSON: Exact words.
It is annoying when you're sufficiently obsessed by this whole mess to recall as soon as you hear this that she actually said "Pray that our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God," which means an entirely different thing. It would be nice if the press could substantively question her without completely fucking it up.
