Sarah Palin, answering a 2006 policy questionnaire
Q: Are you offended by the phrase "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?

PALIN: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance

Um, okay then, Governor. I hope that someone has taken the opportunity in the past two years to educate her on the history of the country. That phrase was added during the cold war - 1954. And the Founding Fathers? The pledge was written in 1892. That means the Founding Fathers had already been dead and buried for 50+ years.
