The Palin Phenomenon

The Sarah factor is only a factor because evangelicals have made it so. In my opinion, which by God’s grace will continue to be shaped by a Biblical view of life, there has never been a better time to vote on principle alone. For us Reformed theologians, I offer a sixth sola: Sola principium. I am continually befuddled by how evangelicals are amused by the perpetual trickery of their politicians. On one side, James Dobson argues persuasively that he will not vote for John McCain, and then “wallah!” the Palin factor walks in and Dobson alters his ever-changing mind. On the other side, the Republican media machine, which castigated McCain for his unwavering commitment to bi-partisanship, now praises him as the agent of change. When the “moral” force of a party and the entertainment side of a party join forces, it is time for Christians to abandon the GOP ship.
