Sarah Palin's Protections Against Witchcraft

You must take a moment to watch this YouTube video showing Sarah Palin being blessed against . . . witchcraft:


Its contents are simply not to be believed. As reported by the Associated Press:

A grainy YouTube video surfaced Wednesday showing Sarah Palin being blessed in her hometown church three years ago by a Kenyan pastor who prayed for her protection from "witchcraft" as she prepared to seek higher office.

The video shows Palin standing before Bishop Thomas Muthee in the pulpit of the Wasilla Assembly of God church, holding her hands open as he asked Jesus Christ to keep her safe from "every form of witchcraft."

She's so afraid of witchcraft, she seeks church sanction against it? This truly calls into question her credibility as a candidate for national, or even for any, public office.
