Democrats Find Spine Today!Bush in Contempt! Torture Banned! No Retroactive Immunity for Bush's Illegal Surveillance!
Flip-flopping McCain voted today to allow torture.
Meanwhile the House Democrats may have miraculously found their spine in Article I of the Constitution by voting today to hold Miers and Bolton in contempt!
And Republicans disrupt Tom Lantos’ Memorial Service! Boy they hate Congtressional Oversight. Don’t they!
Did you know we executed 8 Japanese for water torture (the old name for waterboarding)? Maybe they were trying to prevent an atomic bomb explosion. Wouldn’t that make — in Bush’s and McCain’s view — their torture of American servicemen justified?
Oh what a slippery slope we fall on when we start justifying inhumane and unconstitutional violence. Remember when we used to think of America as the good guys? Remember when the world used to agree?
Happy Valentine’s Day. Now if only we could create an America that spread love and was loved by the rest of the world…
