Report: Palin Asked Rick Warren For Advice

GOP VP nominee Sarah Palin called influential pastor Rick Warren earlier this week to ask for advice on how to handle the criticism that has come her way, The Hill reports.

In a California radio interview, Warren said that Palin had called him to seek help in dealing with the "unfair, unjust" attacks she said she believes had been launched at her since being tapped as John McCain's running mate. Warren recounted the conversation, saying he responded by saying, "the question I asked her was 'how can I pray for you?'"

Warren said Palin asked him to "send her some bible verses on how do you deal with the unfair, unjust attacks and the mean-spirited criticism that comes in."
