Obligatory Monday morning Sarah Palin post

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

It's 4 days since I last blogged about Sarah – have you missed her? Thought not, but here's a little something I found this morning – novelty t-shirt website Skreened are selling this lovely item for anyone wishing to walk around with Palin's mug on their chest. "Intelligent design?" Geddit? It's a bit of a cheap shot, but I thought I'd pass it on.

If you're looking for something a little more serious, yesterday's Los Angeles Times had a piece on Palin and religion, pointing out how Palin the governor has often been careful not to push her beliefs too far in the political arena.

Meanwhile I watched the first debate between Obama and McCain at the weekend – it was something of a dead heat, but it left me looking forward to more. We'll certainly be watching closely when Palin goes head to head with Joe Biden on Thursday. Given Biden's views on creationism ("I refuse to believe the majority of people believe this malarkey"), it's a shame there are slightly more pressing issues for the candidates to deal with.

To whet your appetites, here's the first debate in full – unless you have a spare 90 minutes, you may wish to dip in and out:
