    "In a speech Saturday to the National Rifle Association, Sarah Palin said that "if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists." The audience roared with approval."


    There is no facepalm GIF I could find that adequately explains how I feel about this.

    I noticed that Herman Cain realized the poor taste of the joke, but he chalks it up as a one-time gaffe.

    A friend (former RJer) posted something today on FB about how offended he was that she would conflate baptism with torture (he's Catholic and a big-ass lefty). You should have seen the crazy defenses of Sarah from some of his right-wing relatives or friends (they must have been relatives; I can't imagine he has friends that crazy). They insisted that his was "fake outrage" all because he dislikes her politics.

    I said, "She doesn't have 'politics', she has inchoate rage and resentment expressed in gibberish."

    Your story sad to tell,
    A teenage ne'er do well,
    Most mixed up non-delinquent on the block!
    Your future's so unclear now,
    What's left of your career now?
    Can't even get a trade in on your smile!

    Angels: (La lalala lalala lalala...)

    Beauty school dropout,
    No graduation day for you.
    Beauty school dropout,
    Missed your midterms and flunked shampoo!
    Well at least you could have taken time, to wash and clean
    your clothes up,
    After spending all that dough to have the doctor fix your nose up!

    Baby get moving (Baby get movin),
    Why keep your feeble hopes alive?
    What are you proving (What are you provin)?
    You've got the dream but not the drive.

    If you go for your diploma, you could join a steno pool.
    Turn in your teasin comb and go back to high school!

    Beauty school dropout (Beauty school dropout),
    Hanging around the corner store.
    Beauty school dropout (Beauty school dropout),
    It's about time you knew the score.

    Well they couldn't teach you anything,
    You think you're such a looker,
    But no customer would go to you unless she was a hooker!

    Baby don't sweat it (Don't sweat it),
    You're not cut out to hold a job.
    Better forget it (Forget it),
    Who wants their hair done by a slob?

    Now your bangs are curled, your lashes whirled, but still the world is cruel.
    Wipe off that angel face and go back to high school!

    Baby don't blow it,
    Don't put my good advice to shame.
    Baby you know it,
    Even Dear Abby'd say the same!

    Now I've called the shot, get off the block, I really gotta
    fly!
    Gotta be going to that, malt shop, in the sky!

    Beauty school dropout (Beauty school dropout)
    Go back to high school
    Beauty school dropout (Beauty school dropout)
    Go back to high school
    Beauty school dropout (Beauty school dropout)
    Go back to high school

    Christians conflate baptism and torture all the time. The crucifixion and the baptism are the two things that bring them closest to God.

    If Jesus were a real person alive today, he would be on the far left. Prophets are progressive, and Jesus would have sided with the meek, the middle class, universal healthcare, and so forth.

    Jesus would NEVER support white supremacy, big oil, or invading other countries under false pretenses. He would be appalled by everything that defines the republican electorate. They drag his name through dirt when they call themselves Christian and go against everything he intended of them.

    Fake Christians separate church and state ONLY when it suits them. And using Christianity selfishly is spitting in the face of Jesus.

    Once again, HottJoe,
    your well-considered and articulate post is spot-on.

    Thank you for stating this so eloquently, Joe.
