In June, when Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin addressed the graduating class of commission students at her one-time church, Wasilla Assembly of God, she ' painted the current war in Iraq as a messianic affair in which the United States could act out the will of the Lord." "Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God," said Palin. In a statement to the New York Sun yesterday, McCain campaign spokesman Michael Goldfarb endorsed Palinâ€™s comments " 100%":
"This is an incredibly humble statement, a statement that this campaign stands by 100%, and a sentiment that any religious American will share -- the hope that our countryâ€™s actions are indeed righteous," a campaign spokesman, Michael Goldfarb, said.
