Let's take a poll

Who out there believes that last June, when Sarah Palin talked about the Iraq war being a "task from God" for the American military, she was actually quoting (or, rather, paraphrasing) Abraham Lincoln?

Yeah, right.

I know Lincoln's quote is accurate. The part I am highly suspicious of is that she was enough of a historian to be familiar with the quote, enough so that she could casually toss it into her message to her congregation.

That and the curious lack of "Abraham Lincoln once said ...." during said speech.

She does have good speech writers.
