Torture Roundup

just-no-organ-failure-please1More of that Bush legacy we’re hearing so much about:

1) Condi approved waterboarding first.

2) Holy Joe can’t figure out whether he likes waterboarding or not.

3) John “Torture” Yoo booed, still clueless.

4) Leahy says Bybee should resign.

5) Dick Cheney – still a complete tool.

6) Abu Zubaydah gave useful information before he was tortured.

7) FLASH: Torture doesn’t work.

8) Sean Hannity says he’ll be waterboarded for charity.

9) There are 5 more torture memos, but you can’t see them.


Yeah keep it up. Just linked to your last one, on Rummy the Scummy One.

Weekly feature maybe?

If Hannity really wanted to do something for charity he’d submit to the singed weasel. Yeah, fuckface, take the singed weasel hard for Catholic Charities!

At last, we find one thing that Condi did while in office other than look at shoes!

Tammy Duckworth to VA as assistant secretary. Fuk tha GOP and their minions for keeping her out of congress.

@RZ: Maybe. The GOP tantrums alone should provide sufficient material.

It would be a great way for a charity to make a fortune.

I wonder if the Illinois chapter of the VFW will feel just a tad uncomfortable.

Oh, and how much to waterboard Hannity? How many times? Can I take pictures?

It took a while, but the sidebar is now advertising the Neptune Memorial Reef.

@Tommmcatt the Wet Sprocket: Do we have a new category of Hate Torture? But most importantly, will they accept PayPal?

“How much mascara do you have on?” *snicker*

DEVELOPING HARD: Great Orange Satan ran a poll in Texas, in which the question “do you think Texas would be better off as an independent nation or as part of the United States of America?” was asked. Result? Stay 61:35 Go.

Another question: “Do you approve or disapprove of Governor Rick Perry’s suggestion that Texas may need to leave the United States?” Here, Disapprove 58:37 Approve.

GOPers asked are breaking slightly in favor of ditching. Self-described independents (which may be Galt Goners, Paultards, dope-smokers, anarchists, etc.) are probably a small sample, but they favored GTFO by 55:40.

This is just one poll, but this I fear is slowly but surely turning into a thing.

John Yoo booed, still clueless.
That’s because you can’t boo Yoo. You gotta chant Yoo.

Or pour a bucket of pig’s blood on him at the prom.

@Tommmcatt the Wet Sprocket: If he actually goes through with it, Original Andrew will eat my pants on YouTube.

@ManchuCandidate: Always has been, really. Just getting more play north of the Red River now.

My problem with all of this is that it wasn’t Safe, Sane and Consensual.

So I want the fucking dregs of humanity who propagated this shit to face justice. And I’m not particularly concerned about Barry’s prospects for a second term.

The arguments about weighing the prospects for health care reform against a political shitstorm/shutdown if charges are brought against Cheney, Condi, et. al. don’t hold water with me.

Is US America a nation of laws or of men?

@Pedonator: Sorry, that was a rhetorical question.


Well, assholes, apparently, for a while there…

@Pedonator: Neither. We are ruled by artificial beings called corporations that produce everything from nuclear energy to dissent, engage in mining and selling heavy metal, and whose gains underwrite classical music, conservation efforts and lobbying for tax breaks and minimal regulation and oversight.

We have met the enemy and it made the chair I’m sitting on, the gin I’m drinking, the news show I’m listening to and the laptop I’m writing on. Qwest will kindly take these words and get me to stinque World HQ for posting in less that a second. Hell, even drinkyclown’s bohemian smokes aren’t from Santa Fe any more. (Not a personal blast. Just sayin’.)

So I guess the leviathan will look at torture prosecutions, and depending on whether it would get too close to the black sun that powers their world, make a call on whether to let it happen.

And with that I drain a very nice small martini. I gotta let up and make presentations on sovereign immunity and the federal tort claims act in the afternoon a hundred miles from here. The 3 or 4 to 1 prep ratio is like going to court, and its a pro bono gig but a bunch of clients will be there.

ADD: Randi Rhodes starts on Premiere on May 11 – home of Glenn Beck, Rush, Hannity, Dr. Laura and Jim Rome, for that matter. That’s what I’m talkin bout.

@Pedonator: Is US America a nation of laws or of men?

We are Devo.
