Ever since I put up this post announcing McCain’s VP pick of Alaska governor Sarah Palin, I’ve been surprised how many people are wondering if Palin is a Mormon.

Clearly, I’ve become the official Sarah Palin Mormon link (especially after this post).

It’s amazing this many people are wondering. Perhaps because she was born in Idaho and attended the University of Idaho?
