I'm Serious.
If You've Ever Even Considered Responding to an Online Request, Please Respond to This One.

It's not just that Dick Cheney is a reprehensible, arrogant bastard who thought and still thinks he is above the law, it's much more than that.
His role in okaying, and possibly masterminding, the torture and abuse of detainees at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib has put our troops in danger, diminished America's moral stature in the world and violated many of our basic principles as citizens.
He should not be above the law, nor should his subordinates.
Please act now and urge Attorney General Holder to investigate Cheney and his cohorts' role in torture and abuse that have been well documented.
Please do this, and tell us you've done it in the comments section.
Thank you.

that is why America is such a great country - in France things like that owuld be buried for years !

If you want to hear some scary shit listen to Phil Musser, a repub strategist, defend the leadership and judgment of Cheney on MSNBC. The good part is when he digs his own grave with his lips by saying in front of both Lawrence and Norah O'Donnell that he walked through Gitmo and could tell by looking at them that the prisoners were guilty.

Again, a thing of beauty to behold.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Not that odd, BigSis. I can tell by looking that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gonzales, Rice, Feith, Yoo, Bybee, ad nauseam are guilty as Hell.
Phil Musser is a nobody from nowhere, going nowhere--fast.
They are running out of GOP mouthpieces and apologists, I see.

Karen Zipdrive said...

This shit WAS buried for years.
It's high time it's unburied and aired out.

bigsis said...

Still worth hearing the O'Donnells tear into this idiot. Who in their right mind go up against those two?

i listened to john thune this afternoon. apparently, the new set of talking points is to say that the rethugs don't endorse or approve of torture, BUT who's to say that, at the time, it was the best thing to do? we really ought to just forget about it. unfuckingreal! now my ears are being assaulted by john ensign's (my gaydar is ringing like crazy, btw) insistence that the new report that came out about torture is a "democrat" report. tweety, as much as he sometimes aggravates the shit out of me, is ripping ensign a new poopyhole.

Karen Zipdrive said...

John Ensign's insistence on calling things "democrat" rather than the correct "democratic" pissed me off so much I changed the channel.
These GOP assholes are so ignorant, they intentionally get their opponents' name wrong, like that makes US look bad or something.
In reality, it casts aspersions on everything they say.
It reminds me of that dimwitted California beauty queen who kept calling it "opposite marriage."
I have no patience for intentionally ignorant people.

nonnie9999 said...

tweety has called them on saying democrat instead of democratic a few times, and when he does, the rethugs sit there and just look like imbeciles. they can't even come up with a defense for not knowing the difference between an adjective and a noun.

speaking of opposite marriage, you need to stop by my place and piss on rudy 9/11.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Someone on the OlbermannMaddow show said it was better to delay launching an investigation until the public was even more riled up, because an investigation would essentially put a gag order on everything.
I tend to agree.
The public is stupid by and large, and they need things drilled into their heads a lot before they get fed up and demand action.
A few more weeks of frantic media coverage would probably be a good thing.

Let one more half wit trot our the Jack Baer 24 scenario of the ticking bomb with your toddler and poodle strapped to it as a rationale for shoving an arachnaphobe in a box with a bug and I am going to waterboard myself. Such half assed Fake hollywood drama almost never exists and if it did what did plots were foiled by taking Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to Wet and Wild 183 times on a one month family pass ? Oh I know - none.

Waterboarding is bad enough, but doing it several times a day was more about some sadist getting his rocks off than trying to get information off some prick.
I think Dick Cheney and Bush were both sadists, and making torture plans was how they got off. Having an obvious dominatrix like Condi Rice and Igors like Rummy and Gonzalez on staff was a natural.
These villians are right out of central casting.

And what's with Dick Cheney being on TV all the goddamn time now? That bastard hid in seclusion for 8 years while he was VP, and now he's on everything but Dancing With the Fuckin' Stars.

Anonymous, you made my day. Thanks for saying what I couldn't quite spit out. "...he's on everything but Dancing With the Fuckin' Stars" I love that line and intend to steal it as my own. HAHAHASHAHA
