The speech was at a GOP dinner and it was a casual event. She was likely among many old friends at this dinner. I'm surprised the former aides are upset about this. I take this to mean in a certain context: she is a devout Christian who prays daily; she was looking for others with a similar background to pray with and there were none. Now, if I were one of those aides and a devout Christian who prays daily I would feel bad and offer my apologies for not offering to pray or giving the impression that I would not pray with her. But if I were not a devout Christian why would I feel bad or upset? I guess this is a veiled jab at the staff who stabbed her in the back during and after the campaign. The staff who actively tried to destroy her image. She is saying they're un-Christian, as in not embodying Christ-like behavior and she's right.
Palin told the story in a speech to a GOP dinner in Alaska last Friday.
"So I'm looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra," she said of the moments before the debate. "And the McCain campaign, love 'em, you know, they're a lot of people around me, but nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray."
As the audience laughed, Palin noted that she meant no disrespect to the McCain campaign and that ended up saying a prayer with her daughter Piper.
A handful of the McCain campaign staffers who traveled with the former vice presidential nominee nearly every day for two months caught wind of Palin's remarks on Thursday morning — and they aren't thrilled with her quip.
She was only trying to help the ticket. She did everything she could to help McCain win. She was chosen by McCain and his staff should have respected that. Instead they didn't hide their extreme dislike of her and tried to destroy her along with MSM. I won't forgive them for that and I'm sorry, but I think Palin is okay to express her hurt feelings over this.
