      her stupid comments about getting someone in the cross sights and how Gabby Giffords was shot shortly thereafter by someone who thought Palin was the second coming? True, she is deranged, but she also has followers who think she is fucking wonderful.

      This is not something to "let go".  

      I am writing this comment from Lebanon.  If people follow US politics, they know that Sarah Palin is a major US politician.  They don't get the subtlety. They don't understand that most of us Americans think she is deranged.

      They see an American politician standing before a cheering crowd, comparing the torture of Muslims with the Christian rite of baptism.

      Do you think this reflects well on Americans?  Do you think this does any good at all for Christian communities at risk from al-Qaeda militants across the border in Syria?  

      This was a breathtakingly ignorant and hateful statement.  Americans around the world need to stand up, disavow what she said, and tell her to shut the fuck up.  That kind of speech gets people killed here.  It's grotesque, hateful, frankly hard to think of a worse thing someone could say.  This is not something to let slide.  Those hypocritical "Christians" who cheer her on should be told to their faces to shut the fuck up too, and that they are ignorant of their own religion and represent the absolute worst of America.
