    It's hard to believe she was actually a nominee for anything that mattered.

    Sarah Palin: 'Waterboarding Is How We'd Baptize Terrorists' If I Were In Charge

    Sarah Palin wants terrorists to know how the United States would deal with them if she were president.

    Speaking Saturday at the National Rifle Association's "Stand And Fight" rally at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate accused the Obama administration of instating counterterrorism policies that "coddle adversaries."

    "Come on. Enemies, who would utterly annihilate America, they who'd obviously have information on plots, to carry out Jihad. Oh, but you can't offend them, can't make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen," she said. "Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we'd baptize terrorists."

    Saturday's rally was part of the NRA's annual meeting, which drew thousands to Indianapolis.

    During her speech, Palin focused on Second Amendment rights, which she said liberals are "attacking" in addition to the United States' "foundational values and tradition." According to Palin, creating gun-free zones in schools and other public buildings is "stupid on steroids."

    "Maybe our kids could be defended against criminals on the spot if more Mama Grizzlies carried," she said. "And [the] Obama administration wants you ID'd for that? Well, then go ahead and carry a sign too. A sign that says 'Yeah, I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.'"

    what an insult to the right.




    btw, who is the most ignorant ?

    Sarah Palin. Christine O'Donnell, Sharon Engle, Todd Akin (of legitimate rape infamy) or Cliven Bundy, ?

    When McCain selected Sarah Palin as his running mate, he lost my vote. He choked like a dog and ended up creating one of the biggest political jokes this country has ever seen.

    Any organization that offers the dingbat a microphone should be ashamed.

    Is that a legitimate way to baptize someone?

    Just imagining how close she was from being one old man's heart beat away from being the "leader of the free world" sends shivers down my spine.

    It wasn't close. No need to be dramatic.

    That's an insult to the right. More like a mouthpiece for the teaparty nutjobs.

    You know... He only did it because she was a female. He didn't even know anything about her. Just simply chose her because he thought he could get some Hillary supporters to switch. That Obama/Hillary battle was bloody and he thought he could capitalize on that. What a mistake that was.

    And we wonder why the rest of the world hates us. If you want to argue for waterboarding, fine, make your argument. But to just disrespect a religion like that is appalling.

    Teddy Roosevelt, Harry Truman, LBJ would all disagree.

    If we're not conflating intolerance with full-on functional idiocy I'd say O'Donnell, she's just a broken toilet of a human being.

    I am just amazed that she was able to use the word 'smidgen' properly.

    Closer than it should have been. The fact that an imbecile like Sarah Palin could be a Vice Presidential candidate of the United States speaks volumes on how uneducated and gullible the conservative voting population in the U.S is.

    The silence from the conservative Christians on this forum is deafening. They have time to try and tie Obama to an unbelievably horrible crime, yet they seem to have no problem with this person using one of the most sacred rituals to the Christian faith as a joke for torture. Remember when Jesus baptized John the Baptist and then held his head underwater until he almost died? That's like my favorite part of the Bible.

    I don't think torture is how Jesus would treat his enemies. Maybe I'm wrong.
