Referring to her political future, Sarah Palin said, “If I die, I die.”
When I first heard this I assumed this language was designed to feed the Christian sense of persecution. Turns out it’s even more Biblically resonant than that.

Esther 4:15: “When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
New Wineskins speculates on Palin’s relationship with Esther, though Beliefnet’s David Gibson was way ahead of the pack on Esther-mania.
