Ok, so a bunch of folks have commented on Ms. Palin's missing the extent to which the founding father's supported the Pledge of Allegiance, see here,
11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?

SP: 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.
courtesy of Think Progress here. Given that the Pledge wasn't written until 1892 and the words "under God" weren't added until 1954 her answer is a bit ahistorical. However, what I want to know is this, would she consider the answer "If it was good enough for the founders to do without the phrase "under God" or even without a Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, is it good enough for today's Americans to do without them as well, should they choose to do so." Just asking.
