On Today's Show

What are the true tenets of Sarah Palin's particular brand of evangelicalism? Pentecostalism, which adhere's to an extreme literal interpretation of the Bible, has long been misunderstood. Witchcraft, for example -- which Palin had Pastor Muthee purge from her -- figures prominently, as do some other bizarre beliefs.

In the 3:30 hour of the show, we'll get a lot of insight into Palin's beliefs and how they may play out politically, from Diane Wilson, former Pentecostal and author of the new book Holy Roller: Growing up in the Church of Knock Down, Drag Out; or, How I Quit Loving a Blue-Eyed Jesus.

Also: We'll talk about the latest in the battle to beat back Prop 8 in California (don't forget to bid on the bear!)

And: What does Colin Powell's endorsement really mean for Barack Obama? What do you think of Powell being actively involved in his potential future administration?

Also: Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Republican congresswoman calls for an investigation of anti-American activities by members of Congress. Perhaps we should start with her! More on the show.

And: Palin is going to what she calls "pro-America" parts of the country and tells Christian Broadcasting Network she is for the federal marriage amendment. And so much more on the campaign's today on the show.
