This isn’t just a completely random moment, by the way.

(Also notice, btw, how her own personal photog, Shealah Craighead, who used to be Bush’s White House photographer, instinctively knows to grab those shots and slap them up on the Facebook site.)

Palin, who likes to accessorize her agenda, wearing the biggest Star of David she could find in Jerusalem. On the heels of Huckabee’s visit, sure a lot of Christian Right GOP aspirants doing the underground tunnels with their fundamentalist counterparts.
