Sarah Palin, Guns, and Water-boarding (How's That for a Hot-Button Title?)
My thoughts on the Sarah Palin video making its rounds on social media, and many different responses to it.  These are my thoughts, the way I’m processing these things right now.  Take it for what’s it worth, which may be very, very little.  And it’s kind o...
