After Sarah Palin’s morally bankrupt declaration that waterboarding is like baptism, Sean Hannity — of all people — is coming to her defense, spinning a lurid scenario that would haunt any parent. Wouldn’t you waterboard someone to save your children?
The Fox News and conservative radio show host on Monday defended former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s (R) comment over the weekend that “waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”
“Well what do you want to do with terrorists?” Hannity asked on his radio show before diving into a hypothetical in which someone kidnaps three kids. In his comparison, the authorities detain one of the kidnappers, but the kids are still missing.
“Let’s see. Would you want to baptize by water boarding the guy who took your three children? I think would. As a matter of fact, it wouldn’t really be much of a question. I think I’d baptize them again and again and again until I found out where my kids are,” he said.
