TULSA, OK -- Recently New Yorkers were both amazed and confused to see Sarah Palin walking down Wall Street and blessing the very financial institution that has caused so much trouble of late. The problem was, it wasn't Governor Palin at all. It was Tulsa Reverend Deborah Sweetin.
"We actually poured oil and wine and prayed right there on the monument, and as I was doing that, crowds were coming up and saying 'That's Sarah Palin,'" said Reverend Deborah Sweetin.
Reverend Sweeten is mistaken for Palin quite often these days and she doesn't mind the comparison. Sweeten is host of a television ministry, and has visited countries throughout the world spreading her message. As far as her hopes for the election, Reverend Sweeten is optimistic, but also sees a great future for the United States, even if the McCain/Palin ticket fails to win the White House.
"I'm going to pray for Barack Obama and his wife like I've never prayed before, and believe that they're going to make righteous decisions," said Reverend Deborah Sweetin.
And though she has enjoyed the comparison to Sarah Palin and the attention it has brought, she has hope for both her and Palin's careers.
"I know she's a fighter and I believe this fight has only made her stronger," said Reverend Deborah Sweetin.
