From today’s Quotation of the Day list mailing:
“Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska I was mayor of my hometown…. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities.”
– Sarah Palin, U.S. Republican Vice-presidential nominee, mocking Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama’s experience as a community organizer.
In response to Palin’s comment, some person unknown quipped “Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a governor.” The slogan quickly appeared on t-shirts offered for sale on-line.
