Then again, it’s not really a spa either….
Jay at Classless Warfare is unhappy with Sen. Ted Kennedy for this statement:
“On March 19, 2004, President Bush asked, ‘Who would prefer that Saddam’s torture chambers still be open?
“Shamefully, we now learn that Saddam’s torture chambers reopened under new management: U.S. management.”
A United States Senator actually compared what has happened in Abu Ghraib with the reign of terror Saddam Hussein inflicted upon his own people for almost 30 years. Does this man have no shame? Does he have no perspective?
That’s a nice morale boost for the majority of troops over there who are doing good things Senator. Good job asshole.
Leaving aside the fact that, if you really wanted to boost the morale of the troops, you would bring them home, oh, yesterday, Jay and one of his commenters would have you believe that it’s not really torture when you compare it to what Saddam did. I’m sure the torturees might beg (and we can get them to do that…really!)to differ.
Henceforth, being strapped to a board and submerged until you think you are drowning will be referred to as Hydro-Therapy. Being forced to simulate sex with fellow prisoners is now called Role Playing. Being made to form a naked pyramid is Job Training for the Upcoming Baghdad Cirque du Soleil. If you are stripped naked and led around on a leash you Living A Day In the Life Of Former Louisiana Congressman Bob Livingston. And if you are actually forced to have sex with a slack-jawed, clueless goober, well, now you know how Karen Santorum feels….
