Sarah Palin was repeatedly asked in recent weeks if she'd consider running for an office beyond that of Alaska Governor. And much like Barack Obama on the topic of abortion, she deflected the question to God.
As Palin famously told Greta Van Susteren…
"Putting my life in my creator's hands — this is what I always do. I'm like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I'm like, don't let me miss the open door.
"Show me where the open door is. Even if it's cracked up a little bit, maybe I'll plow right on through that and maybe prematurely plow through it, but don't let me miss an open door."
Well when it comes to Ted Stevens' Senate seat, consider the door slammed, because Stevens lost yesterday, thus precluding a special election that could have featured Palin.
And thank Me for not giving you a shot at the U.S. Senate. Because while I, God, wouldn't slam any doors in your face on Capitol Hill, a justifiably bitter John McCain certainly would.
