In this video, Sarah Palin's minister introduced her to the church's congregation as “She is a disciple of the lord Jesus Christ before she’s a mayor”.
Conservatives would be howling if Mayor Bloomberg were to speak at a synagogue, and the rabbi said 'He is Jewish before he is mayor.' The fun begins 56 seconds into the video. Remember the concerns raised about John Kennedy? When Hoover ran against Al Smith, he constantly said "The pope will be president."
But Palin gets a pass on this.
