Palin's Pastor And The "Liberated Wailing Wall"

More

Yes, Google is an amazing thing. A reader finds this Jews For Jesus pamphlet (PDF) from 2004 that reveals more details about Palin's pastor:

"If it were not for Jews for Jesus, I would not be standing here," the pastor announced. "And here is their executive director, who has come to speak to us this morning."

What a warm and wonderful welcome to a terrific church -- Wasilla Bible Church -- that sits a little less than an hour outside of Anchorage, Alaska. 

Pastor Kroon was referring to a presentation he and his wife had seen in Seattle back in 1974. The young couple realized their lives had strayed from the things of God, and they decided to begin attending church. Lo and behold, The Liberated Wailing Wall from Jews for Jesus was visiting that morning.

You can download the PDF of the pamphlet here. It comes up as the first search result on Google, a new-fangled thing the McCain campaign apparently hasn't heard of. I mean: when you do vetting, you use Google, right? My reader came up with this a couple of hours after I posted about it. The McCain camp had months to do their homework.
