- For years now there has been a call to investigate the Bush/Cheney criminal acts of authorizing torture. What's to investigate? Cheney on numerous occasions confessed in interviews and in writing that he authorized the use of waterboarding, stress postions and other forms of torture. Bush in his recently released book brags about authorizing these methods.
Again there is nothing to investigate. We know beyond a reasonable doubt that they violated the law and the constitution. What is lacking is the WILL to prosecute from those currently under oath to uphold and protect the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.
- There's an old saying that in history events start as tragedy and repeat as farce. I think what we're seeing to day is the opposite. What started as farce: remember Pat Paulson for President? Bart Simpson for President? etc. Everybody knew it was a joke and not to take it seriously, but how else can you explain the tea party candidates as other than jokes that people have started taking seriously?
