Tour de Torture

This just in:

(Reuters) NEW YORK - The Pentagon is seeking to cut by more than half the number of detainees at its prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where the United States has been accused of abusing and torturing inmates, The New York Times reported Friday.

The Pentagon aims to transfer hundreds of detainees to prisons in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Yemen and is seeking support from other federal agencies to facilitate the planned moves the newspaper said, citing senior administration officials.

You may remember Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Yemen. All three are home to terrorist strongholds. And all three are countries where torture is practiced.

Yes, that's right. We've been caught abusing prisoners in Cuba, so time to ship them somewhere else to be abused.

I have no sympathy for terrorists. But can't we at least come out and just admit we're torturers already?

Sidenote: how happy are you that Summer and Seth are back together on the OC. Please let them be happy for a while... until Anna comes back into the picture.

But I digress. Here's another disaster:

Democrats now hold only 44 seats in the Senate, the fewest since 1931, so they’re seeking the strongest candidates they can, even if such candidates are doctrinally abhorrent to abortion rights groups.


I tell ya. Those Democrats have got it figured out. Next they'll be looking for a candidate who wants to mandate the teaching of "intelligent design" in classrooms, and ban gay marriage. I can see the 2008 election already:

At the debate:

Moderator: What's your stance on abortion?

Presidential Nominee Dick Cheney: It should be illegal.

Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton: It should be illegal, and the head of anyone contemplating it should be cut off.

Moderator: What about gay marriage.

DC: Well as you know, my daughter...

HC: Ban it!! And Burn Them!!!

Vice President Nominee John Edwards: Yes!! I couldn't agree more!

John Kerry (with cart): Hot dogs! Get your hot dogs!

Moderator: Hillary, I thought you were a Democrat?

HC: I'm a new Democrat, Charlie. We're more sensitive to the needs of the right wing extremists.

DC: She's just pandering.

HC: You have a gay daughter. G-A-Y

Moderator: Now Hillary...

HC: It's time to bring moral values back to the white house... the moral values of the same people who once loved slavery.

Brian Williams, NBC anchor: And the results are in... the Democrats win!

HC: Now that I'm president, it's time to start a war with Sweden!!!

Howard Dean: Yeehah!!!!

I give up. I'm registering as an Republican.

That way at least, I can try to sabotage them at the primaries.
