"...One nation indivisible, with liberty and justice..."

Over at Pharyngula, PZ posts some of Sarah Palin's responses to a questionnaire she was given while running for governor of Alaska. One of the answers, in particular, jumps out at me:

11. Are you offended by the phrase "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
SP: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I'll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
Wow. Either she doesn't realize that the offending words were added in 1954, or she considers Eisenhower and McCarthy to be founding fathers. I'm not sure which scares me more.
