Sarah Palin, Baptism & Waterboarding

Mollie Hemingway, writing at The Federalist, correctly chastises Sarah Palin for telling the National Rifle Association convention that "waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists." Everything about the comment is offensive in the extreme but what really caught my attention was how she set up the remark. Palin said, "If I were in charge..." Obviously, with that premise, whatever follows is likely to be delusional.
