If We Don't Torture, Why Veto A Law Against It?

Friday, Dec. 14, 2007 12:03 AM

The House has put together a bill that, surprise, bans waterboarding and other forms of degrading or inhumane treatment. (Which, of course, they shouldn't have to do, as they've done it before, and it was against the law before that.)

And President Bush is threatening to veto it.

Because ... well ... we have 'ta ... uh ... have the flexi ... flexi ... um, ability to question these people that wanna destroy our way of life and kill Americans. That's why we're fightin' 'em over there, so we don't have 'ta fight 'em here, 'cause if we stop fightin' 'em over there, they'll folla' us back home.

Of course, it's not like anything will be done about it, even if he does. We're still caught up in this fucking idiotic debate over the merits of torture, and some of the fine, upstanding Christians whose significant contributions to Western Civilization we just recognized via H.R. 847 ... why, they're leading the charge in favor of.
