Palin: 'Thank the Lord' and 'God has so richly blessed this land'

Sarah Palin is ramping up God talk on the campaign trail.

The Associated Press reports that yesterday, she said, "God has so richly blessed this land, not just with the oil and the gas, but with wind and the hydro, the geothermal and the biomass.

And today, The Wall Street Journalreports that Palin said the campaign had seen some good news in recent polls. " 'We even saw today, thank the Lord, we saw some movement,' she said, looking upwards and making a fist when she said "thank the Lord."
