There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

To be honest, I think there is a bit of a "witch hunt" going on now, against the demure Sarah.
I mean...........Take a look at this.
The Holy Laughter Anointing.
Or this.
Sarah Palin: Pentecostal.
Are these " people" the same species as us? I need to go to bed now, My eyes are bleeding.

Python Michael Palin puts squeeze on the lipstick pitbull Sarah Palin
Sarah Baxter

JOHN McCAIN picked the wrong Palin for his running mate, according to a YouTube video that is spreading like wildfire on the internet.

The presidential candidate should not have chosen Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska, but Michael Palin, the former Monty Python star turned travel documentary maker.

“Although a British citizen is not technically qualified to run for office in the United States, he is still more qualified than the other Palin,” says the video from the website Michael Palin for President.

It is not just that he has seen so much more of the world than his namesake, who has seldom left the United States. The video cites evidence from the sketch show Monty Python’s Flying Circus of strong religious convictions that could help him attract support on the conservative right. Who can forget the sketch with Palin dressed as a cardinal, shouting: “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!”?

He also takes a stance on the environment (“I’m a lumber-jack and I’m okay”), constitutional affairs (“Strange women lying in ponds, distributing swords, is no basis for a system of government”) and the penal system (“Cardinal, poke her with the soft cushion”).

Michael Palin says he does not know of any relatives in Alaska but believes the governor has given McCain’s campaign a “feisty edge”.

Bloody scary!

In the first one, the wife says, referring to her husband: "He knows what the right decision is." Looking at her, I know what way he'll vote if he knows what's good for him!

Thunderfoot, who posted on You Tube the devastating series "Why People Laugh at Creationists", has extended it to include comments on Sarah Palin. Have a look at this one:

What wonderful women, especially the one on the left. I don't think I've ever seen such an impressive vox pop interview.

Incidentally, has a link to this video already been posted: Obama Speech on Religion?

Very good Emma I hadn't seen that speech, it gives me a bit of hope for America.
But did you notice how when quoting the bible, he was constantly checking his notes? Like most Christians he doesn't even know, or can't remember, what his "good book" says.
People like him (and there are millions of them) only know the bits of the bible that the preacher reads to them, or tells them to read.

C'est la vie as prank call embarrasses Palin

Published Date: 03 November 2008
By ROSS LYDALL
POLITICAL EDITOR
FOR someone who could soon be a heartbeat away from being the leader of the free world, it was hardly a performance likely to win over wavering voters.
Sarah Palin, running-mate of Republican presidential candidate John McCain, was yesterday a laughing stock after falling for a spoof call by a radio presenter pretending to be French president Nicolas Sarkozy. With 59 per cent of Americans already regarding her as unfit for office, Mrs Palin spent six minutes failing to realise that she was being set up by Canadian comedian Marc-Antoine Audette. He and partner Sebastian Trudel are known as the Masked Avengers, and their other victims include President Sarkozy, ex-French president Jacques Chirac, Paul McCartney and Britney Spears.

When Tony Blair was subjected to a spoof call in 1998 from comedian Jon Culshaw – who posed as the then Tory leader William Hague – it took him only seconds to spot the joke, though he played along.

But Mrs Palin missed a number of jokes from "President Sarkozy", from his wish to go hunting with her to his claim his wife Carla Bruni was "so hot in bed" and had written a song for Mrs Palin. He said his special US adviser was Johnny Hallyday – the veteran musician and actor known as the "French Elvis".

He told Mrs Palin hunting was one of his favourite hobbies. Speaking English in a fake French accent, he said: "I just love killing those animals. Mmmm, take away life, that is so fun." He said it would not be a good idea to invite Dick Cheney, the US vice-president who accidentally shot and injured a hunting partner during a quail hunt in Texas in 2006. Mrs Palin responded: "I'll be a careful shot."

She also failed to spot when Audette gave the name of Canadian singer, Stef Carse, as the Canadian prime minister, rather than the current incumbent Stephen Harper – and he also named a fellow comedian as the Governor of Quebec.

Mr Audette said he wanted to check whether Mrs Palin had been right to complain about hostile coverage from some US media organisations. "We tried to speak with her a little bit about foreign affairs, and well, it gave the result that you can air," he told the BBC.

A spokeswoman for Mrs Palin said: "Governor Palin was mildly amused to learn she'd joined the ranks of heads of state, including President Sarkozy and other celebrities, in being targeted by these pranksters. C'est la vie."

Barack Obama's spokesman said: "I'm glad we check out our calls before we hand the phone to Barack Obama."
