“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Sarah Palin Debate Thoughts

Two female perspectives on last night's debate:

First, from Peggy Noonan, trying to make amends for her off camera remarks:

"Sarah Palin saved John McCain again Thursday night. She is the political equivalent of cardiac paddles: Clear! Zap! We've got a beat! She will re-electrify the base. More than that, an hour and a half of talking to America will take her to a new level of stardom. Watch her crowds this weekend."

From Michelle Makin:

"Pause to reflect on this: She matched — and trumped several times — a man who has spent his entire adult life on the political stage, run for president twice, and as he mentioned several times, chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sarah Palin looked presidential. Joe Biden looked tired. Sarah made history. Biden is history."

And Palin didn't have to BS either--

Biden, like his frontrunner, shamelessly lies through his teeth. Last night was no exception.

I hope that you are right. However, I think there is a lot of anger because of mismanagement and the bailout, and I believe that this will help Obama.
