    You do know that Baptism doesn't just refer to the Christian act, but has instead broadened through the years to include any act of inititation or devotion? That's how Baptism By Fire came into being.

    Your entire post sounds like you've been listening to her.

    It always seems strange to see Liberal males become so hysterical in their hatred of particular Conservative women. Almost from day one, the fact of Sarah Palin's traditional views on home, marriage and family have driven Liberal men crazy with rage. It just seems "Unmanly" for men to attack attractive women. One would think they would be embarrassed.

    Look, I am not the least offended by her comment. I do however think it is important to point out for her to do so violates her own religion. It's especially delicious in that she often uses her religion for political favor. As if somehow Christ himself wold approve of torture?

    One would think you would be embarrassed to support such an mindless loon. No doubt you would have been fine with giving her the codes.

    I always love how those in the party constantly whining about the "war on women" are the same ones how shamelessly display their misogynistic hatred of any woman who has the temerity to be conservative. It's quite similar to the contempt shown by that party's faithful for any black person who has the temerity to be conservative.

    I'm also not offended by her comment being the heathenous non-religious person that I am. I also know her brain and mouth don't always move in sync. But in this case, she could have been using the non-religious word. I use "baptism" myself in business and trust me, I'm not talking about that kind of Baptism.

    I can criticize her a lot, and have, but on this one, I guess I don't see the big deal.

    Not necessarily fair. I have no problem criticizing Hillary Clinton, as an example, without resorting to commenting on her appearance and/or comparing her to animals. But hey, that's just me.

    There are plenty of conservative women that I respect. But I draw the line at religious whack jobs like Palin and Bachmann and hacks like Coulter.

    Let me just say that terrorists and others in countries we consider "savage" laugh at our sensibilities when it comes to the handling of those who wish to destroy us. It's somewhat similar to the way that many Americans laugh at Canada's treatment of criminals and suggest it's much better to commit a crime in Canada than the US if you may get caught.

    When in defense of country and person, I'm not all that squeamish about the treatment of those who wish to destroy me.
