If God was watching, from a distance or otherwise, HOW did these ... people ... survive?
Because, seriously, Peggy Noonan? George Will? Walking away? Transparent for the terrorists too?
There is nothing bad enough that can be done to you. Your souls are too shallow and your intellects are too shrivelled and your non-existent consciences too seared. Whatever you are, -- and you are lots of things -- part of my species isn't even on the list. You cannot imagine with what fervent loathing I despise not just you but the heroes of your vapid existence, the ideals of your utter thoughtlessness.
As for the rest of the circle of pundits who "jousted" after the broadcast of this week's Sunday-morning roundtable ... I can think of nothing better to do to you than broadcast your words and let your utter corruption ooze out into public view:
Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol started things off by saying: "I'm not confident that forswearing the use of these techniques is prudent."
Then Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume took it a step further by emphasizing that Obama "needs to aware of what he may have unleashed here," warning of the possibility of "Congressional show trials" and emphasizing:
"What we really need is to have all these techniques at our disposal... they talk about the banging of the guy's head against the wall. It turns out to be very controlled and it's a soft wall that gives way... I'm not at all sure that's torture."
The program's host, Chris Wallace, agreed with Hume's assessment of the "soft wall" technique -- "it strikes me as fairly cautious and careful."
Bouncing a guy's head off a wall? How about we try that with YOUR head, Chris Wallace? Let's use one of the walls in the sound booth, shall we? It should be soft enough.
Athenae, over at First Draft, is all over this too but ... but ... there is no curse vile enough for these blathering nincompoops.
Show hearings? Ye gods and little fishes. Please, somebody take George Will back to the Home for Wayward Old Fuddy-duddies, before he hurts himself...
PS -- Harry Shearer, at least, gets it. Go read him.
