I asked the Witchdoctor he told me what to do....

Seriously folks, are a lot of Americans about to vote for a VP that didn't get the memo that witch hunts went out of style around 1692?

Palin's spiritual mentor, Pastor Muthee, somehow ended up in Wasilla, AK after getting his big start in Kenya, where he gained notice after accusing a local woman of being a witch, saying she caused car accidents, and threatened and harassed the woman until she was forced to leave town. Every year, hundreds of women are killed after being accused of being witches in Africa.

Muthee, in the sermon, calls on church members to try to gain footholds in centres of influence, such as politics and the media, and praises Palin for her bid to become governor of Alaska. He spoke about the hindrances she faced from her enemies. "In the name of Jesus, in the name of Jesus, every form of witchcraft is what you rebuke. In the name of Jesus, in the name of Jesus, father make away now," Muthee said.

In a video that emerged last week Palin, in a speech to the church on June 8, thanked Muthee for his help in getting her elected governor. She said his invocation was "very, very powerful".

The Democratic candidate, Barack Obama, faced weeks of damaging reports this year over links to controversial Chicago pastor Jeremiah Wright, who was accused of being unpatriotic. The links between Palin and Muthee have the potential to damage her.

The Christian Science Monitor reported that Muthee, while in Kenya, led a campaign to find the source of alleged witchcraft after a series of fatal car accidents in Kiambu. He blamed a local woman called Mama Jane, who is reported to have been forced to leave.

Muthee, in a promotional video, said: "We prayed, we fasted, the lord showed us a spirit of witchcraft over the place."


Curiously enough, this and dozens of other YouTube videos critical of Palin have been yanked down. Here's the same video that still survives. (for now.)

Give a listen, and tell me if this guy doesn't sound like HE'S possessed! The guy's voice sounds like he should have done the voice-over in "The Exorcist".

Yeah, I noticed the strange voice. But the strange theology is what's really scary. And the thought that someone who believes this crap could end up in the WH.

This is what American anti-intellecutalism has brought us. One day we'll be as scared of this as we are of the cnosequences of American greed (and de-regulation) now.

What we REALLY have to fear is Republicans, of all stripes.

mycritters,

Yeah, it's really scary to think that someone THAT crazy could be in charge.

But I believe that Palin really doesn't believe in any of that crap.

I think she's just a cynical politician who, like most Republicans, simply use these gullible tools in fundy churches to get elected.

They say what they want to hear, gather up all their money, get their votes, and once in office, give them nothing but quasi-religious rhetoric.

They never go to bat for any of the issues that fundy's want. They just use them like rented mules, and they have for decades.

But I'm not sure which is worse, actually believing this dangerous hogwash, or being so hungry for power that you'd kiss their asses just to use them to get elected.

Either way you slice it, Palin's a mess.
