Sickness in Government

from - smijer

Wouldn't it just be great if the only time GWB used his veto power in his entire two terms was to protect the 'right' to torture? I feel sick. Hunter said it best:

I think it's time to invent some new swearing, because there isn't anything currently in the language that fully encompasses the White House's unapologetic attempts to ensure the Bush administration's own crafted and approved "interrogation" policies be allowed to continue unhindered. Yes, according to the Bush administration, any attempts by Republican senators to legislate against, say, the sodomizing of detained children are unduly infringing on the president's fight against terrorists.

Later...

Yup. I've been screaming at my car radio again.

Thing is, a vote on this is expected soon. Call your Senators -- even if you think it's a long shot. As your quote indicates, there are some Republican Senators who are willing to buck the party line on this. Probably not Frist, but Alexander shows some spine now and then.
