Who, Among Us, Would Have Ever Thought

That torture, the legalizing of torture, would ever be debated in any division of our, government Of the United States of America? This is such a disgusting fucking spectacle, that I just don't have the energy to get really pissed off. The historical legacy Bu$hCo so sorely wants will be nothing but toture, vaniety wars, & absolutely no accountability. I hope the spoiled brat is happy. I agree with this assessment, as well.
I am beyond being able to assess the political implications, one way or the other, of this spectacle. Regardless of which version of the bill finally passes, this debate is a black mark on the soul of the nation. Of course passage of a pro-torture bill will diminish U.S. standing internationally and jeopardize the safety and well-being of U.S. servicemen in future engagements. But merely having this debate has already accomplished that. Does anyone honestly believe that if Congress rebuffs the President in every respect that the rule of law and the inviolability of human rights will have been vindicated? Of course not.

The Republicans have defined deviancy down for the whole world, including every two-bit dictator and wild-eyed terrorist.

Feeling safer?
