Sarah Palin: Islam is the one true religion

Well, I paraphrase. What she said was:

We are ripe for economic growth and energy independence if we responsibly tap the resources that God created right underfoot on American soil.

But we can conclude from this that God created oil reserves under particular lands for His own perfect reasons, and that those with the greatest oil reserves must therefore be the most divinely favoured – i.e the Muslims in the Middle East.

(A few years ago I thought of, but never got round to writing, a spoof piece about the Republicans splitting into two factions: the oil-backed business elite and the Bible-belters who found the very notion of ‘fossil fuels’ a blasphemous surrender to evolutionists. Palin is clearly trying to heal this rift.)

(And the phrase “right underfoot on American soil” suggests ignorance of kindergarten physics, never mind geology.)
