Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Sarah Palin to the White Courtesy Phone

Since she seems to imagine herself the scold of anything that might be offensive about disabled children — anything said by Democrats, at least — one wonders if she’ll be chiming in on this heinous claim by a Virginia state legislator that God punishes women who’ve had abortions by making their later children disabled in some way.

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” said Marshall, a Republican.

“In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”

What say you, Sarah?
