Murphy's tweet is in response to Palin, during a speech at the National Rifle Association's "Stand And Fight" rally on Saturday saying that if she were in charge the United States would clear that waterboarding "is how we baptize terrorists."

"C'mon! Enemies who would utterly annihilate America, they would obviously have information on plots. They carry out jihad. Oh, but you can't offend them. Can't make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen," Palin said. "Well if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists."
