Bundy, Sterling and Palin. Has the US turned a corner? Are we finally sick and tired of the bull ****?

Speaking at the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention last week, Palin had explained how things would be different if she were president.
They obviously have information on plots to carry out jihad, Palin said of terrorists. Oh, but you cant offend them, cant make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen. Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.
By Tuesday, Faithful America had already reached its goal of 15,000 signatures on a petition condemning Palin for the remarks.
This is what weve come to in America: A former candidate for vice-president can equate torture and Holy Baptism, and one of the nations most powerful political lobbies erupts into cheers and applause, Faithful America noted. As usual, Palins remarks are already making international headlines, once again portraying Christianity as a religion of hatred and violence.
