    Sarah and the GOP have about the same chance of moving into the White House in 2017 as Mickey Mouse has. = Zero.

    I also hope that she runs. We all need a laugh.

    Remember when everyone not voting for her was "skeered?"

    Thirdly - the US Constitution requires that a President leave his/her religion behind when accepting the office and carrying out the duties entrusted to the office upon election and inauguration. As such, Palin would not be governed by Christian doctrine when carrying out her duties. She did say, if I'm not mistaken, "If I was in charge" implying, from my perspective, if she was President, she'd have no problem with reinstituting waterboarding with regard to terrorists caught planning and/or attempting to murder scores of innocent American people.

    Fourthly - since you bring up the "teachings of her saviour" do you also wish to hold Obama to that same standard? Is Obama's stance on abortion and same sex marriage consistent with the teachings of his saviour? To my knowledge, no terrorist has died under waterboarding but no one can argue that a least a few human lives in early development have died at the hands of abortionists, some after leaving the womb.

    Finally - one would hope that Ms. Palin's comments would be taken within the context in which they were given and not so seriously as to suggest something deeper and more sinister.


    All of that is accurate and correct. But is it moral?

    And, no, I do no hold believers to account usually, but when they combine torture and faith as she has done here, it becomes necessary. As far as I know Obama has done nothing to attract any attention for his Christian belief's, if indeed he has any.

    I think she did. Of all the dumb things she's said in the past, this is at the top of that list for sure.

    Thoughts?
    OMG Really? That is what you are pissed about today? Probably didn't bat an eyelash when the same ilk of the terrorists killed three of our doctors last week.

    I say no. I thought it was funny.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's fair - Obama hasn't attracted attention to his Christian beliefs except when combating accusations that he's a secret Muslim or when a photo-op is required outside a church on Easter or Christmas, etc.

    And see, from the start, I never took Palin's comment as being related to religion. Granted her words were spoken, but in any recap I've seen the word baptism/baptized is not capitalized, as it would be if a Christian was using it in the sacramental sense, nor did she speak about Baptizing terrorists "into the church" which is what the sacrament entails. She more spoke about baptism in a more secular way, as in "introducing" terrorists into the way she, as leader of the country, would operate. As well, this was basically a keynote speaker kind of rouse the crowd oratory that she's come to be famous for and not anything in the way of a serious policy discussion that would go along with a run for office.

    Anyway, we all look at these things differently and perhaps I give her a little more slack than some because I find her refreshingly blunt and entertaining in the way she approaches public and political issues/discussions. She's doesn't have the canned, politically correct answers to all controversial questions. She's pretty much reached the stage, for me, of the old grandmother who'll blurt out something outrageous and everyone has a good laugh. I remember considering Ann Richards, the former Democrat Governor of Texas in the same way after she left politics - refreshingly candid.
