Andrew Sullivan Has Seen the Light


I haven't read much of Andrew Sullivan's Blog for the last several years because I thought him to be just another self loathing gay man who sucked up to Bush and his band of crooked Republican cronies.
But, after hearing him orate on Bill Mahar's "Real Time" the other night, then catching up on his Blog, I can see he's become enlightened.
His current blog page (toward the bottom) exposes Bush to be the man who brought us Abu Ghraib and Gitmo torture, and wants to keep it up.
It includes speeches made by genuine former soldiers such as John McCain and Colin Powell, who heartily oppose gratuitous torture and abuse during war time.
Bush's threat to veto McCain's anti-torture bill shows in technicolor what a sadistic little son of a bitch Bush is, and always has been.
Check it out. Tell us your favorite parts.

I wish Bush would start to have vivid dreams about the torture his orders have prompted.
Imagine: a female al Qaida prison guard, standing over Bush's naked form, sticking pages from the Bible up his ass, then posing for photos with him.

He'd think he was back at a Skull and Bones initiation meeting.

ok..my fav part:
"Some do not see the need for this work. Some argue that since our actions are not as horrifying as Al Qaeda's, we should not be concerned. When did Al Qaeda become any type of standard by which we measure the morality of the United States? We are America, and our actions should be held to a higher standard, the ideals expressed in documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

It was in the letter from Fishback,and jesus..does Andy have his hands on McCains coat-tails or what? He's got his nose so far up McCain's ass he knows what he had for dinner the nite before.

Compared to Bush, McCain is a statesman on the same par as FDR.
I like McCain as much as I like most Democratic Senators- he's got common sense and he's not a warmonger or draft dodging chicken hawk like this Bush crowd.

dusty said...

yes he is Karen but he's also grandstanding to stay in the spotlight for his presidential bid..his hearings on steroid use in professional sports is such a case...i question his motives i guess..

Karen Zipdrive said...

I always question the motives of any Republican, but McCain seems like the least revolting of the pack.
He can forget about becoming president in 2008 though- people are fed up with GOP presidents.
He'd be a nice VP for Hillary, though.

I, too, think that America should absolutely outlaw torture, and abide by the Geneva Conventions. It makes me ashamed that we do otherwise.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Can you imagine what BushCo would say if the insurgents held our service men and women in POW camps and did the same kinds of sadistic things to them?
I am amazed they haven't retaliated that way.

dusty said...

there is NO way we can call any other nation on the carpet if we DO NOT outlaw the same barbaric tactics used by other countries..Abu Garib has shown us what the Bush Administration is cabable of..and its sickening..we have lost all credibility with the rest of the world regarding human rights abuses.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Bush claims the moral highground, trying to force democracy on people who hate our guts.
Typical drunken behavior- Bush thinks he's his own higher power, and that He Knows Best for the entire world.

I found this (o/t) part down on the Sunday post:
"There are two reasons to vote against Harriet Miers. Someone who needs a "crash course" on constitutional law should not be selected to be a Supreme Court Justice required to make decisions, if confirmed, in a short period of time. The second reason is simply that this president has abused his power by picking someone who "worships" him, whose fundamental qualification is that she is an indentured servant to him, and whose fundamental loyalty has long been to a political dynasty, rather than a serious, settled judicial philosophy. I'm still waiting for the hearings to give her a fair shot. But in some ways, this nomination tells us little about Miers, and a lot about Bush."

Wow. It's refreshing to hear a conservative speak with realism, isn't it? He seems to be able to see clearly through the spin and b.s. Guess the kool-aid didn't work on him because he refuses to use the memo'd talking points. He sure nails that Bushy tail with the accuracy of a woodsman hunter, while subtlety encouraging us to sniff the air for hidden danger.

Karen Zipdrive said...

These Bush acolytes remind me of people who joined Jim Jones's church after he'd already started mixing up the Kool-Aid.
If I was a GOP politician and Bush offered me ANYTHING, I'd say no, then go howling to the press about it to get my aversion to him and his criminal conduct on the record.
