Yeah, I really wish I was making that up.
Via Sadly, No! comes the distrurbing opinion that, in order to get the truth about all this torture stuff, Bush should just pardon everyone involved so they could feel free to speak without having their lives inconvenienced with things like “investigations” and “court dates.”
The whole piece reads like some odd sort of sketch comedy script, where they were going for humor and instead crashed headfirst into a big pile of Stupid.
How would pardoning people who engaged in and ordered torture going to improve our world image? How would that ensure we get to the truth of the matter, a truth that pretty much everyone in the Ruling Class and The Village seems desperate to avoid?
I’m just stunned that this sort of thing is even being seriously discussed. Our country tortured people, and we’re talking about ways to excuse that behavior and brush it off as partisanship.
See, laws are for the Little People. Only people like us have to obey the laws. The Administration, Congress, anyone who helps them or works for them? They get a free pass, and the media is more than happy to keep those passes coming.
All for the sake of avoiding that awful, terrible partisanship.
Which, by the way, is something that only the Ruling Class and The Villagers care about. I frankly think that we need more partisanship, not less.
Unfortunately, the Democrats are obsessed with appearing beyond partisanship while the Republicans continue to behave in an excessively partisan manner.
And all the while, the heroes in our media pat the Democrats on the head, then accuse them of being too partisan.
Good people of Teh Internetz:
We are fucked.
